but in 1984 he began his historic 'walk across America'. [1]

in 2007.

in 2009, Art joined Paul Simon for the first of several shows in Beacon Theatre in New York, and they converged again at the New Orleans Jazz and Heritage Festival in 2010 with initial plans for a full tour, but Art Garfunkel was beginning to experience vocal problems at the time, so the tour was cancelled. He has fully recovered and toured solo since.

Personal Life and Acting[]

Outside of music, Art Garfunkel maintains a vast interest in literature, especially the works of the philosopher Jean-Jacques Rousseau.

Art Garfunkel married Linda Marie Grossman in 1972, but they divorced three years later.

He married Kim Cermak in 1988 after recovering from his depression when his girlfriend of 1975 committed suicide in their New York apartment.

Art Garfunkel and Kim have two children, James Garfunkel and Beau Daniel Garfunkel, born 1990 and 2005, respectively.

He has cited "Here, There and Everywhere" by The Beatles as his favorite song of all time and Rumours by Fleetwood Mac as his favorite album.

He has also pursued acting on multiple occasions, having taken roles in the films Catch-22 and Carnal Knowledge, both Mike Nichols films, as well as in Bad Timing, Good to Go, Boxing Helena, and others, as well as having appeared multiple times as a cameo.
