The Menil Song
In conjunction with their upcoming exhibition at Art League Houston entitled “presenting…The Black Guys”, artists Robert Hodge and Phillip Pyle II have begun promotion of the exhibition by showcasing their musical talents. Available now on ITunes is their first single “The Menil Song” off of the soon to be released album also named “presenting…The Black Guys.”
Those not familiar with the Menil Collection get a full description of the artists and environment, in the catchy, and entertaining song. Clever lines such as “Air condition out the floor/ and a book store”, and “ I love Robert Raushenburg/ but where the hell is John Biggers?”
The Art League Houston exhibition, “presenting…The Black Guys” opens November 14th and runs through January 3rd. The exhibition consists of an introduction of the Black Guys while also paying homage to the Art Guys, Michael Galbreth, and Jack Massing. The Black Guys will recreate five different Art Guys performances, while adding a twist that could only come from Black Guys. Also there will be original performances and 2D work as well.
You can purchase “The Menil Song” for $0.99 at ITunes
