Work of ART
Built around the award-winning song writing, singing, and inspired guitar playing of Art Halperin, New York City's Work of Art is an eight piece band playing uniquely styled rock n' roll. 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, Living Colour, 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.
Long before it became fashionable, Art was expressing his concern for the environment in
his music. Recent songs such as "Rescue the Future," "Wolf," and "Back into the Sea" are
eerily prophetic, mirroring our times. New York's premier FM rock station WNEW, used
"Rescue the Future" in their service spots promoting Earth Day. The song also received large independent radio play.
Art's video for "Back into the Sea," directed on land and underwater by five-time Emmy
award winner Norman Smith has been seen on MTV, Night Flight and Radio1990, and is
frequently aired on local television stations in the Virgin Islands and West Indies.

Lyrics

There’s a place

And so we meet again, I knew we would
There’s no coincidence, it happens like it should
Just like I pictured it, that’s how it will be
Life’s too short to be alone, come along with me

There’s a place…
There’s a place in the middle, in the middle of the deep blue sea
Where I’m going…
There ain’t another living soul on this earth I want to take with me
Won’t you come along? Come a long with me

Not too long ago, I could have burned
You might have been a slave if the world didn’t turn
But we escaped easily, we were both born late
Our timing was pretty good, call it luck or fate

There’s a place…
There’s a place in the middle, in the middle of the deep blue sea
Where I’m going…
There ain’t another living soul on this earth I want to take with me
Won’t you come along? Come a long with me

There’s a place, better than this place
Where I see myself, standing there with you (2X)

And so we meet again, this time it’s right
In the land of the brave and the free, there’s always hope in sight
