Music History as an Art

The theme of this gallery is how music and art can coincide with each other. Since the beginning of time from medieval to renaissance to modern times art has played a part in musicianship and music genres. It also plays a big part in instruments. It has represented through fashion/clothing from musicians such as Prince, Elvis, Michael Jackson, Jimi Hendrix etc. It also played a major part in different times of history such as wars, civil rights, the times in the 70's when people talked of revolution, hippy days, and many more. Art doest just have to be a painting but it can be a solid figure.
