Whips by Curly Dekle

Whips by Curly Dekle

Date
1983-12
Description
Sixteen color slides. Examples of Dekle's whips. Images were created as fieldwork for the apprenticeship program. Dekle was a master artist during the third year, 1985-1986. The Folk Arts Apprenticeship Program began in 1983 with a NEA grant of $22,000. The program provided an opportunity for master folk artists to share technical skills and cultural knowledge with apprentices in order to keep the tradition alive. Apprentices must have had some experience in the tradition and had agreed to train for at least six months. The first project director was Blanton Owen, who was later replaced by folklorist Peter Roller. The program was continued each year until 2003.
