Tufts Daily reports a performance artist teaching a course at Tufts considers Fairey such a hypocrite that he had his students make up posters with the express purpose of pasting them over a mural Fairey had put up at the student center.

The postings came about as a result of a project in an Experimental College course on performance art. Since their discovery and partial removal last Tuesday, they have sparked a Tufts University Police Department report and an investigation by Office of the Dean of Student Affairs. They have also provoked ongoing dialogue over free speech, the institution of marriage and about how the greater Tufts community engages and views issues pertaining to social justice.

The Somerville Journal pulls back the covers on the annual Naked Quad Run at Tufts, held last night (for all the nudity, not a whole lot to actually see, if you know what I mean, but probably something best viewed in the privacy of your own home):

The Naked Truth | NQR's history marred in rumor and conjecture - Tufts Daily makes it sound pretty boring.

That $5 offer for a naked butt or otherwise weird thing on Google Maps still outstanding.
