--I am currently doing a similar lesson plan. You might look into the
Abstract Expressionist period. (Jackson Pollock) These artists anlong
with the movements on the west coast during this time, had ties to jazz
movements. Or, Rauschenberg and Cage. or, the use of music and art as
part of a ceremony such as with many Native American tribes.
