HIGHLIGHT: MICHIGAN

-

Detroit: One of COVID-19’s latest casualties: a statue of RoboCop. The Michigan Science Center will no longer be the permanent home for the eagerly awaited, grassroots-driven work of art. In a statement, the museum said that “given the pandemic’s unpreceden­ted pressures, MiSci’s resources must now be entirely focused on our core mission of serving Michigan’s students and families.” “It’s all assembled and put together,” with applicatio­n of the final patina underway, said Brandon Walley, a filmmaker and key part of the quest to make the RoboCop dream a reality. “He will need a home, and we’re exploring possibilit­ies.”
