Oil painting of the Virgen de Gaudalupe

Oil painting of the Virgen de Gaudalupe

Eighteen color slides. Images of a religious painting by the children of Maria Castillo, a recent arrival to Florida. The image of the Virgen de Gaudalupe was made on December 12, 1982 because the Castillos did not have their church available to hold the Virgin's feast. In winter 1985, the Bureau joined with two folklorists to conduct a folk arts survey of the St. Johns River basin in northeastern Florida. The St. Johns River is the largest and most used river in Florida, supporting a great amount of river commerce and a modest amount of commercial fishing. Folklorists Mary Anne McDonald and Kathleen Figgen conducted the survey from January through March 1985, under the direction of Folklife Coordinator Blanton Owen and Bureau Chief Ormond Loomis.
