Ingenuity and Tradition: The Common Wealth of Massachusetts

Introduction:
Massachusetts, like the rest of the United States, is a complex place where old and new stand side by side on the landscape and where tradition and innovation combine in people's lives to make them whole. The ingenious combination of old and new is repeated throughout Massachusetts by people as varied as black blues musicians, Cambodian craftspeople, Finnish cranberry farmers, Portuguese fisherfolk and Chinese computer assemblers. In examining Massachusetts traditions for the Festival program, scholars found that change, no matter what its cause, challenged individuals and communities to find creative ways to maintain traditions.

Like the great transformations that have shaped Massachusetts and the country as a whole, traditions can undergo change and emerge transformed but still recognizable. Puerto Rican singer Felix Luna of Lowell applied the traditional decima song form to new lyrics about the Challenger disaster. Gospel singer Napolean Stovell of Springfield directed his southern-born quartet to enunciate their words more clearly because the New England audiences like to understand what is being sung. Mario Picardo of Boston incorporated traditional Italian architectural features to make a bandstand but used plywood, foam, tin foil, and cardboard ravioli boxes to erect his towering confection on the streets of the North End as part of an annual saint's day feast, transplanted to the National Mall by a large contingent during the 1988 Festival. These individuals and their communities remolded traditions into usable form because these traditions add meaning to their lives. That's what folklife both in Massachusetts and in the modem world is all about, and what visitors could experience during the Festival of American Folklife.

Betty Belanus was Curator of the Massachusetts program and Barbara Lau was Program Coordinator. Ingenuity and Tradition: the Common Wealth of Massachusetts was made possible by the Massachusetts Council on the Arts and Humanities.

General:
"The 16 slides show the progression of the garden from the entrance gate past the recirculating stream that ends in a beautiful pond at one end of the garden. There is a gravel garden area and several benches to stop by. Tall Douglas Firs encircle the whole site, so there is a dramatic change from the very suburban landscape this office building inhabits. (A steak house, a Union 76 gas station, a mini-mall strip)
"The garden is almost 15 years old, and has been constantly maintained by Kurisu, International. It is always presentable for viewing. Hoichi Kurisu has done many landscapes in Portland, Oregon. It was difficult choosing his best work. We looked at homes and huge condominium developments. We chose this design because it has created a real oasis of beauty in a very chaotic suburban sprawl area. He is a very talented and capable landscape designer."

Archival materials
Place:
Duckridge Farm (Portland, Oregon)
United States of America -- Oregon -- Multnomah County -- Portland
Scope and Contents:
The folder includes a worksheet, a garden plan, a description of the garden written by the owner, and a color photo.
General:
This 85-acre property and its gardens have been under development since 1979 by both the original owner and her architect grandson, the current owner. The house, completed in 1979, is styled after French country farmhouses. Because of the advanced age of the original owner, one of the primary objectives of the garden was to allow her to view it from the house without actually venturing out into it. This was accomplished by creating long axial views deep into the landscape through a variety of garden spaces. The house is on a hilltop and the gardens terrace down the hill from the house. The entry hall of the house is in line with the most significant landscape feature, the meadow, which stretches from the house to the wood's edge. Additional axial views from the house include one framing Bald Peak, the highest peak that can be seen from the house, while other axial views can only be appreciated while in the garden. These various views are framed and aligned by using evergreens trimmed like columns and low walls to edge and direct the eyes through the garden. Architectural elements at the end of each axis provide focal points. In deference to the style of the house, gardens close to it are formal and "continental" in design. Moving away from the house, the gardens loosen up and relate better to the woods that surround the site. Within the overall evergreen structure are perennial gardens punctuated by ornamental shrubs and trees selected for spring and fall color. Annuals are used sparingly in containers where the soil and water can be better controlled. The current owner continues to use the garden as a laboratory to explore new ideas and to improve on less successful decisions made in the past. Overall, this is aided by the remarkable climate and good soil conditions of Oregon's Willamette Valley.
Persons associated with the garden include: Blanche Dimmit Miller (former owner, 1978-1990).
