Found Art Friday 163

Dear ones,
Of the blogo-cosm - here are this week's offerings: First of all, we come upon ...
Across the street from
 It's "About Time"- remember?
And down a little ways was
this Squashed abandoned Baby Sock

Now we'll call attention to some words, artfully combined;  so much still hangs on words.

Recently, we took a book recommendation off Face---- from a friend-of-a friend-who-also used-to-be-a-cousin's-girlfriend-who-might-now-be-called-an-aquaintance: The book, "Us" by David Nicholls.  Page 75 makes the Art Ranger laugh thoroughly, reminding us of our perennial challenge to explain this profession to newcomers:
Okay, here's An article worth reading if you care about socially engaged art:
by A.O. Scott, entitled: Looking the Other Way, from which we will share a comment by poet, Patricia Lockwood:
 "I would never tell artists that they had to address social issues in their work, because as soon as you tell artists that they have to do something, they turn around and poop on the floor.  Tell them instead that these questions are difficult, that the story is missing something without them, that they are another dimension, and then see what happens."
Onward awkwardly, after getting vertebrae moved 

Soon the holiday may whack us all with an oversize red plastic hammer.
Perhaps an image sent here will be a winter lozenge:
