Built around the award-winning song writing, singing, and inspired guitar playing of Art 'Ski' Halperin, New York's, 'WORK of ART' is an ever-changing band playing uniquely styled rock, pop, reggae, good-feeling-music. Away from home, they've successfully toured throughout the US., Europe, South America, and the Caribbean, both headlining and opening up for acts such as Santana, Jerry Garcia, Third World, Jimmy Cliff, The Police, Bo Diddley, and Chuck Berry. As a solo artist, Art has shared the stage with Eric Clapton, Bonnie Raitt, Marty Stuart, Joni Mitchell, Robbie Robertson (the Band), The Temptations, David Grisman, Doc Watson and Glen Tillbrook of Squeeze.

Art's abilities have taken him in many different directions. As a composer, songs he's written for other artists have appeared on Billboard's R&B, Pop, and even Classical charts. He's written and recorded on many national and international albums, TV., and Radio commercials. Along with his band, he's also been featured on screen in the John Sayles movie "Baby it's You."

The legendary producer and talent scout John Hammond Sr., (the man who discovered Dylan, Springsteen and Aretha Franklin among many others) was so impressed with Art's music that he signed Art as the first artist on Hammond/CBS Records. A ten-song album was completed for the label. After Hammond passed away, rock history books have noted Art to be “John Hammond's last discovery”.

Rescue the Future

I’ve climbed up these mountains, I’ve swam in these shores
You couldn’t recognize them now
The trees have all been cut down
The water has all been turned brown
The big blue sky is one black cloud

Oh - Hear what I say
We’ve got to rescue her - for the future is here today
Oh - Hear what I say
We’ve got to rescue the future, for the future is here today

For children of tomorrow, there’s nothing left but promises
Who would have thought there’d come this day?
When the world is tied to a train track
The train is coming down real fast
And people just look the other way

Hear what I say
We’ve got to rescue her, for the future is here today
Hear what I say
We’ve got to rescue the future, for the future is here today

These pirates all around us, they’re raping mother nature
For money that says, “In God We Trust”
But what will they do when they make it?
Where do they think they’re gonna take it?
When nothing’s left on earth but dust

Hear what I say
We’ve got to rescue her, for the future is here today
Hear what I say
We’ve got to rescue the future, for the future is here today
