We just got this lovely piece of news from The Berg Sans Nipple’s Shane:

Hey guys,

I wanted to let you know that Cody Hudson (who did the artwork for Along the Quai) has a show at the Museum of Contemporary Art in Chicago that opens in a few days. He’s going to use a new Berg Sans Nipple Song, “Agrestic Origin” as part of an installation in the show.

Cody Hudson’s 12×12 UBS new artists/new work solo show entitled, There Ain’t No Bottomless Pit Here, This is F**king Magic Man, and We’re All Part of it Together, will open on November 3, 2007 at the MCA and continue through December 2, 2007.

Check out Cody’s book of art (which includes the cover of “Along the Quai”) here.
