The Cedar Tavern Singers, also known as “Les Phonorealistes” consider their work both a folk rock band and tongue-in-cheek art project. While creating catchy tunes, they convey the artistic condition and deliver art history education. Much of their work combines pop culture and conceptual art. The piece “Art Is All Over! (If You Want It)” draws inspiration from John Lennon and Yoko Ono’s “War Is Over! (If You Want It!)”.The piece brings forth questions of whether art is at last a part of daily life, or whether art can be ended everywhere.
