"A Piece of history"           By: Kianna Pearson

The chosen theme for this gallery is history in black and white. White and black alone create a completely different emotion than artworks with color. It can also give off a more serious tone to the artwork. The history of humanity is one of the most important things we should cherish. This gallery depicts times in history, and we are given the ability to witness a period of time frozen into photographs.
