Description
Six color slides. The Folk Arts in Education Project in Palm Beach County was a joint venture between the Palm Beach County School System and the Florida Folklife Program. It was conducted between 1986 and 1987 by folklorist Jan Rosenberg with funding from the National Endowment for the Arts to add to existing social studies curriculum. The goal was to impart an appreciation of multi-ethnic traditions and provide a sense of place to the mobile student population. The project focused on the Florida Studies component for fourth grade students. 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, in-school programs conducted by a folklorist and traditionalist, which included visits by local folk artists. In total, the project involved 15 schools with 779 students.

Description
Twenty color slides. Images of Seminole-related artifacts -- baskets and pottery sherds -- from the ethnographical collections at the Florida Museum of Natural History.

One program dealt with sweetgrass basket making; the other on traditional Seminole patchwork. Recordings of the finished program tapes can be found in S 1576, Box 10.

Tropic Cuban Tile Company

Tropic Cuban Tile Company

Date
1987-09
Description
Sixteen color slides. Images of the Tropic Cuban Tile Company, their tiles, truck, and employees. The company was owned by H. Borroto, a Cuban American who moved to Miami in 1949. At the time, his company, along with La Cubana, were the only Cuban floor tile companies left in Miami. These tiles were of cement because clay was not found in South Florida. These styles of floor tiles were popular throughout Latin America. The Florida Folk Arts Survey was conducted in 1987 by folklorists Tina Bucuvalis, Steve Fragos, Merri Belland, and Barbara Seitz as preliminary research for a joint folk art between the Florida Folklife Program and the Florida Museum of History. The field researchers focused on those areas previously overlooked by FFP staff. The research focused on identifying folk artists and locating appropriate exhibit objects.
