Date
1986-05-02
Description
Seven color slides. Grimm's apprentices were Maria Garza and Raquel Herrera. Grimm, born in Mexico City, learned to make pinatas from her family. She made two types: ones made completely of papier-mache, and ones with clay pots covered in papier-mache. Pinatas were used during posada celebrations, Mexican Christmas traditions that was observed the nine days before the holiday to represent Mary and Joseph's trek to Bethlehem. 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 agreed to train for at least six months. The first project director was Blanton Owen, later replaced by folklorist Peter Roller. The program was continued each year through 2003.
