Bon Festival at the Morikami Museum

Date
1987-08-16
Description
Eighteen color slides. The Bon Festival is the Morikami Museum version of Obon (Ullambana), a traditional three-day Japanese festival to honor the dead. Traditionally, the day ends with lighted lanterns to guide souls back to the afterlife. In additions to the lanterns, images of the Bon Festival feature folk dancing, street performers, Japanese cultural demonstrations, and Taiku drumming. The festival was held each August. 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.

The program was continued each year through 2003.

Description
One proof sheet with 36 black and white images (plus negatives). The marimba is similar to the piano, except it is played with mallets. Originally from Africa, the instrument is popular in Latin America. The Mexican American Music Survey was created to document the musical traditions of Florida's various Mexican-American communities: Apopka, South Dade County, Immokalee, the St. Johns River Basin, and Central Florida. Funded by a grant from the Lila Wallace-Reader's Digest Community Folklife Program, the survey was conducted between 1994 and 1996 by folklorist Robert Stone. Among the musical traditions were serenatas, conjunto, quinceanara ritual music, ranchera Michoacana, mariachi, norteno, Tejano, and pop music. At the end of the project, a sampler music tape was created by the Florida Folklife Program for distribution to various libraries.
