Kolam art by Prema Kumar and Menea Venkateswaran

Date
1988-08
Description
Seventeen color slides. Kolam is a traditional Indian art form. It consists of patterns and design created on a flat surface using rice and rice flour trickled with fingers. This was traditionally performed each morning by Indian women outside their home, partly as decoration, partly for use as a bird feeder. Kumar, an Indian grocer, and Venkateswaran demonstrates kolam art. The Folk Arts in Education Project in Duval County was a joint venture between the Duval County School System and the Florida Folklife Program. It was started in 1984 by folklorist David Taylor with funding from the National Endowment for the Arts to add to existing social studies curriculum. The project consisted of field research to identify local traditions and folk artists, a series of five two-day seminars to acquaint teachers with the use of folklore and folk arts, and in-school programs conducted by a folklorist and traditionalist which included visits by local folk artists. Taylor ran it until 1986. In 1988, Gregory Hansen re-initiated it with minor changes.
