El Río

Collection Creator:
Smithsonian Institution. Center for Folklife and Cultural Heritage  Search this
Type:
Archival materials
Introduction:
Building upon a multi-year engagement with communities along the U.S.-Mexico border, the El Río program at the 2000 Festival was one of several important outcomes - including a traveling exhibition, education materials, and documentary video - of the project. The geographic expanse of the basin and its cultural diversity posed a challenge for the project that was met with the help of colleagues and institutions in the region. Smithsonian curators posed several broad questions to their regional collaborators about the dynamic interplay between culture and environment in the Río Grande/Río Bravo Basin. First, how does traditional knowledge developed over generations contribute to managing land and water resources? Second, in what ways does the environment shape a community's cultural identity? And third, how can local knowledge and cultural practices contribute to sustainable development and provide the basis for successful economic enterprise? The Festival presentations were structured around these three domains.

Traditional knowledge and management of the environment. Shrimpers, ranchers, vaqueros, blacksmiths, barbacoa (barbecue) cooks, and artisans who use desert fibers all have different work, but all rely on traditional local knowledge and on their own experience with the fragile natural resources of this desert environment. Centenary ranchers in New Mexico maintain the ancient acequia (irrigation ditch) system to sustain their ethical values and natural ecosystem with community participation. As new people move into the area, conflicts arise over different values placed on cost-efficient technologies. Festival participants addressed how they combine knowledge and technology from many sources and, as importantly, how they establish dialogue with newcomers about tradition and the quality of life.

Landscape and cultural identity. For the Pueblo, water rights govern ritual practices as much as irrigation. When new residents move into an area, different forms of land ownership and use may challenge existing arrangements. Long ago, Spanish settlers in New Mexico caused great conflict and change, but Pueblo traditions have persisted, and in some cases, Pueblo and Hispano communities have developed shared cultural forms, such as matachín dancing. Some of the Rarámuri, a Native American community indigenous to Chihuahua and known by outsiders as Tarahumara, have recently migrated from their rural environment to Ciudad Juárez. Their dance, craft, and foodways traditions help them sustain their cultural identity in an urban environment. Other such expressions featured in this program are Chicano murals, which illustrate the interconnectedness of belief, history, and cultural identity; and South Texas conjunto, northern Mexico norteño, and New Mexico ranchera music, which illustrate the same thematic connections in their music and words.

Local culture and sustainable development. Guided by the values shared in local cultures, successful, sustainable, producer-owned businesses combine both traditional and new skills and technology. These enterprises develop collaborative networks through participation in formal and informal economies, selling their products in community markets, flea markets, tourist shops, through craft catalogs and Internet Web sites, and in other domestic and international markets. Craft enterprises featured at the Festival included a weaving cooperative, cottage-industry piñata making, glass etching, furniture caning, and retablo (sacred image) painting. Building arts included building with adobe, ornamental stone carving, brick making, and self-help home building. All illustrated the creative use of traditional knowledge, available resources, and innovative exchange strategies.

Olivia Cadaval and Cynthia L. Vidaurri were Curators, and Arlene Reiniger was Program Coordinator, with Soledad Campos as Evening Concert Collaborator.

The program was produced in collaboration with the Smithsonian Center for Latino Initiatives. Major support was provided by the State of New Mexico, Smithsonian Latino Initiatives Fund, U.S. Department of Agriculture, and the Housing Assistance Council. Additional support was provided by El Consejo Nacional para la Cultura y las Artes, Texas Commission on the Arts, El Consejo para la Cultura de Nuevo León, Instituto Tamaulipeco para la Cultura y las Artes, Dirección General de Ecología del Estado de Coahuila, Desarrollo Integral de la Familia del Municipio de Saltillo, Coahuila; Programa de Museos Comunitarios en el Estado de Chihuahua, and National Museum of American History's ENCUENTROS: Latino America at the Smithsonian.

Biographical / Historical:
William "Bill" J. Brown (1923-1992) was a designer and educator who was married to Jane Brown (1932- ), an arts administrator. They lived in Bakersville, North Carolina.

Bill Brown was born in Flint, Michigan in 1923. He studied at the Cranbrook Academy of Art receiving a bachelor of fine art in 1949, a master of fine art in 1950, and was chosen to work at Corning Glass Works for a summer. After his studies, he taught at the Haystack Mountain School of Crafts and at the University of Delaware. In 1962 Lucy Morgan, who founded the Penland School of Crafts in 1929 in North Carolina, retired and offered the position of director to Bill. At the time, the school focused on traditional mountain crafts. As director, Bill changed the emphasis of the school to the advancement of professional craftsmen and the expansion of media to include iron and glass. He began a resident artist program that allowed artists to develop their skills at a low cost. Together, Bill and Jane created a supportive community of craftsmen that attracted renowned artists to teach and work at Penland. Bill resigned as director in 1983 but remained a respected member of the arts community. He earned several awards including the North Carolina Award in the Fine Arts in 1991.

Jane Brown graduated from the University of Delaware with a bachelor of arts in education and a master's degree in special education. Jane studied the Alexander Technique, a technique that can be used to improve the performance of dancers and musicians.

Bill Brown died in 1992. After his death, Jane participated in the dedication of the Bill Brown Glass Studio at Penland during a Glass Arts Society conference in 1995. She continues to live in Bakersville, North Carolina.

Biographical / Historical:
The documentary 'Dance Party: The Teenarama Story' examined the popularity of 1950s and 1960s teen dance television shows, including 'The Teenarama Dance Party,' 'American Bandstand,' 'The Buddy Dean Show,' and 'The Milt Grant Show.' 'The Teenarama Dance Party' was an all-black teen dance show produced and broadcasted in Washington, D.C. The show aired from March 7, 1963 to November 20, 1970 on WOOK-TV Channel 14, which was the nation's first Black TV station. The show was produced live six days a week; and hosted first by Bob King and later by a rotation of hosts. In addition to being a dance show, 'The Teenarama Dance Party' was a training ground for teens. Production staff mentored the teenagers in the art of broadcast production. The teens trained as camera operators, floor directors, and technical engineers; and served as production assistants.

Descriptive Entry:
These records primarily document the planning for University of the Air (after 1988 Smithsonian Project Discovery) and The Buried Mirror. Many of the records were created by Elizabeth S. Brownstein, media project development specialist, Office of Telecommunications (OTC). Also included are files of Adrian Malone, production chairman, and Edward W. Bastian, project manager and director for University of the Air. The records include correspondence, memoranda, proposals, prospectus, reports, research information, budgets, illustrations, photographs, scripts, articles, newspaper clippings, audio tape recordings of music, video discs, and marketing information. Also included are information files maintained by OTC on Smithsonian museums, bureaus, staff, and miscellaneous topics.
Historical Note:
In 1986, the Smithsonian Institution began planning two major educational television projects. University of the Air, a joint project of the Smithsonian, WETA Television, and Adrian Malone Productions, proposed to investigate the lives of major twentieth century intellectuals and the basic themes that connected their work. In 1988, the title of the project was changed to Smithsonian Project Discovery. The Buried Mirror was a proposed ten-part television series on the history and culture of Iberia and Latin America to be produced by Malone Gill Productions in association with the Smithsonian. Both projects were terminated because of funding difficulties.
