The art: Matt Johnson, Breadface, 2004. The work is made of cast plastic and oil paint.
The news: This week NPR’s Fresh Air is featuring a week of programs on food. Food is one of Western art’s classic subjects, so MAN will feature a special food post each day. Today: Slices of bread. Think of them as post-war American art’s take on the classic, food-packed Dutch or French still-life. For more on the subject — and some of the artworks featured here today, see this post on Modern Art Notes and a smart response from Kriston Capps.
The source: Hammer Museum, which featured Breadface in the 2005 exhibition “Thing: New Sculptures from Los Angeles.” The show was curated by James Elaine, Aimee Chang and Christopher Miles.
Note: An apparent, er, cousin of Breadface appeared in a Nissan commercial the year after the work was on view at the Hammer…

Of the 5,193 public outdoor sculptures of individuals in the United States, only 394, or less than 8 percent, are of women….And none of the 44 national memorials managed by the National Park  Service (such as the Lincoln Memorial) specifically focuses on women and  their accomplishments….
  The  Vietnam Women’s Memorial in Washington [was] dedicated in 1993 after a  nine-year effort to bring it to fruition. But it didn’t happen easily,  according to its founder.
“It was incredible  how hard we had to work not only to get a sculpture, but one that looked  like women,” says Diane Evans, who had been an Army first lieutenant  and head nurse in Vietnam and spearheaded the initiative. “We were told  by J. Carter Brown, the head of the National Gallery of Art in  Washington, D.C., that a woman’s statue would upset the delicate balance  of tension at the Vietnam Memorial.” (via Washington Post)

  1. Yes, that is made from crayons: Herb Williams is one of the few people in the world who have an  individual account with Crayola.  The company is on his speed dial.   He&#8217;s on a first-name basis with many of the employees.  So what merits  this special treatment?  Because Williams orders a lot of crayons.  Boxes of them.  Thousands and thousands of them.  Three thousand Crayola crayons in a 50-pound case. View in High-Res
