In this gallery, look for photos from the exhibit “From Swing to Hip-Hop: A Photographic History of Music Performance at the University of Michigan” on display inside the Michigan Union. Music has always been an integral part of life in Ann Arbor and at the university. This exhibit explores how Wolverines and others have employed music for a range of purposes, from embracing a common creative past to fomenting political or artistic rebellion. The images are drawn from local archives and depict a rich history of musical performance in Ann Arbor and nearby venues.
Created by Joshua Mound, Gregory Parker, and Jacques Vest.
