Introduction:
The Ralph Rinzler Memorial Concert is an annual event that honors the legacy of Smithsonian Folklife Festival co-founder Ralph Rinzler and his support of "citizen artists," people whose creativity and art-making summon public engagement, foster social awareness, and build bridges among communities.

The 2015 Rinzler Concert also paid tribute to the fiftieth anniversary of both the Delano Grape Strike and the passage of the Immigration and Nationality (Hart-Celler) Act, two events that significantly impacted the cultural landscape of California and the United States. It was co-presented with the Smithsonian Latino Center and curated by the Alliance for California Traditional Arts and featured the California sounds of two distinctively powerful ensembles, Agustín Lira & Alma and Viento Callejero.

The artists represented different stylistic and geographic coordinates across the long trajectory of Latino music in California, from the region's earlier occupation by Mexico to the Latino plurality that characterizes the state today. They reflected the diversity, historical continuity, and the transformation of communities. They demonstrated the importance of music for illuminating civil rights struggles, countering social and political marginalization, and celebrating cultural heritage.

Agustín Lira & Alma chronicle the experiences and hidden histories of Chicano, Indigenous, and immigrant communities integral to California's cultural fabric. Drawing from his experiences as a farmworker in the San Joaquin Valley and inspired by both Mexican and Anglo American musical traditions, Lira contributed to producing the sounds that helped mobilize a historic labor and civil rights movement in the mid-1960s. Participants and allies of the farmworkers' struggle shared his songs at planning meetings, frontline protests, rallies, and the 1966 United Farm Workers' pilgrimage from Delano to Sacramento. In 2007, Lira was honored as a National Heritage Fellow by the National Endowment for the Arts.

Viento Callejero ("street breeze") represents the youthful vigor of a renaissance of Latino dance music in communities from East L.A. to Oakland. This Los Angeles-based ensemble is part of a younger generation of artists driving the resurgence of cumbia - reinterpreting this Afro-Colombian form and providing new opportunities for creative collaborations and community building. Breaking down the rhythmic and melodic pulse of cumbia, son montuno, merengue, reggae, dance hall, funk, and rock, Viento Callejero brings a fresh approach to urban "tropical" music, stripping it to its rawest elements and unleashing a sound that keeps audiences on their feet.

Produced in collaboration with the Alliance for California Traditional Arts, this presentation previewed a future Smithsonian Folklife Festival program focusing on California communities. It was supported by the Smithsonian Grand Challenges Consortia for the Humanities and part of the Smithsonian Our American Journey - Immigration/Migration Initiative.

Scope and Contents:

General:
When their collection of more than 200 species of rhododendron outgrew their previous garden, the owners had a new mediterranean style house built on a steep ¾-acre parcel with views of Lake Washington. The rhododendrons were dug up, wrapped, and stored at a nursery while the site was prepared for planting in 2002. Preparations included three terraces built with basalt rock and stabilized with trees. There are three distinct gardens with different soil mixtures: the azalea and rhododendron garden at the upper level, a tropical garden that includes a patio, and a perennial garden that uses blue geraniums as ground cover under pastel pink, peach, coral, and yellow peonies; roses; and camellias. A basalt rock retaining wall along one side of the property is softened with shade plants including ivy, dicentra, and ferns. Along the other side is a woodland garden with walkways and basalt stone stairs down to the street at the bottom of the property.
Persons associated with the garden include: Stuart Silk (architect, circa 2000); Kemper Iversen, Ltd. (landscape designers, 2002); and Anne Kennedy (landscape consultant, 2017).

The GCA Mexico trip itinerary showed the group traveling through an area called "The Barrancas" on their way from Mazatlán to Guadalajara, and the original cataloging of this record assigned that location (for reasons that are unclear) to this image. However, the area identified in most sources as "The Barrancas" is much farther north and is a remote, mountainous region. It's possible that the group skirted "The Barrancas" on the day they traveled from Guaymas to Mazatlán, but there is no definitive way of knowing if this image was taken in that area.

Scope and Contents:
The folder includes worksheets, site plans, detailed information about the garden's plants, photocopies of articles about the garden, background details from and about the owners, and additional information.
General:
A Japanese-style house and garden were built on this one and one-half acre property by a previous owner circa 1960, with the assistance of landscape architect William P. Hager, who unified three adjoining lots. The current owners added an extensive collection of bonsai and a bonsai house for winter storage, a rose garden in raised brick beds, and numerous decorative features from Japan, including a sake table and stools. Bonsai master and landscape designer Ben Oki designed a rock garden at the entrance to the house, placed enormous boulders moved from the owners' previous property, and also pruned and reshaped full-sized trees to complement the Japanese design. Noting that traditional Japanese gardens are comprised of water, greenery and rocks, the owner built her rose garden in a separate area beyond the swimming pool.
The property also has a hexagonal-shaped teahouse with a pagoda roof, a water garden and koi pond, a terraced garden with a reflecting pool, a moss garden, a swimming pool and pool house, and greenhouses for raising orchids and tropical ornamental plants. The bonsai house maintains the collection of at least 200 plants during the winter at 40 degrees. All the structures, including the house, pool house and carport, have Japanese design elements, such as shoji screens.
Following Japanese tradition hard surfaces, such as the stone shrine and paved walkways, are softened by surrounding plantings of ferns and trees, including Japanese maple and weeping varieties. Bonsai trees and shrubs are placed around the property and on tall stumps left from trees that were removed. Garden sculpture from Japan and a stone shrine are other features.
Materials documenting this garden in 1972 were submitted to the Archives of American Gardens as part of the Hollerith Family slide collection. It was also documented in 1987 and included as part of a 1992 donation to the Archives of American Gardens from the Garden Club of America. An additional submission of garden documentation was provided in 2009, as the Bonny and David Martin Garden.
Persons associated with the garden include William P. Hager (landscape architect, 1960s?); Duke Moody (landscape architect); EAML Architects? (greenhouse architect); David McGehee (architect, 1968-1969); Ben Oki (Bonsai master and garden designer, 2003-2009) and Dabney Turley (former owner, 1998-2003).

The Craighead House and Garden (Nashville, Tennessee)
United States of America -- Tennessee -- Davidson -- Nashville
Scope and Contents:
The folder includes worksheets, photocopies of articles and other information.
General:
A natural wood picket fence along the street opens to a brick pathway through a shade garden and lawn with a contemporary sculpture, "Merging Steel" by Steve Bennyworth, ending at the front door of an historic Federal style brick house. Like other period homes there is no driveway between the house and the street. Fences enclose the entire one acre, with lushly planted deep borders around three distinct lawns, under the shade provided by mature trees. There are tropical plants in pots that are moved to a greenhouse in the winter, as well as flowering shrubs, vines and perennials. A circular brick terrace next to the house and several brick walkways were built from bricks made on the property by slaves in the 19th century, and are laid in "chicken grit" ground granite to protect the tree roots underneath. The foundation of the old kiln where the bricks were fired was discovered by a previous owner and converted into a water feature. In the service area at the rear of the property there is a kitchen garden for vegetables and herbs entered through an arch with espaliered pear trees. The greenhouse is located at the end of the pea gravel path, with a cutting garden for flowers as well as fruit trees and espaliered grapes on a toolshed nearby. Even the designated car park is utilized for beehives, blackberries, and pots of succulents.
The original four room Federal style brick house built circa 1810 has been significantly enlarged by subsequent owners, and the 194 acre farm that comprised the original property has been reduced to a one-acre lot in an historic Nashville subdivision. Earlier gardens were laid out by a previous owner, Frances Moore Ewald, and have been redesigned starting in 1998. The house and gardens are frequently opened for tours and entertaining. Craighead House is listed on the Tennessee Register of Historic Places, is included in the Tennessee conservation easement program through Historic Nashville, and won an architectural award from the Historical Commission of Metropolitan Nashville-Davidson County in 1999. One of the hackberry trees in the garden won first place in a Nashville big old tree contest in 2000.
Persons associated with the garden include: John Brown Craighead and family members (former owner, 1818-1890); Samuel A. Murphy (former owner, 1890 -1905); Richland Realty company (former owner and sub-divider of property, 1905-1914); W.E. and Sarah Watson (former owners, 1914-1915); Homer T. Derryberry (former owner, 1915-1934); Bonnie A.
