Place:
Papp Garden (Paradise Valley, Arizona)
United States of America -- Arizona -- Maricopa -- Paradise Valley
Scope and Contents:
The folder includes worksheets and tour booklet of the garden.
General:
Located on a little over one acre, the Papp Garden reflects the owners' longtime interest in desert plants and garden art. In 1991, when the owners purchased the property they took quick steps to design this garden. To create a feeling lushness, they planted many trees on the property including two large Chilean mesquite trees in front of the house to frame the entrance and Palo Verde trees and acacia trees lining the drive The backyard garden has evolved over time to suit the needs of the owners growing family. Originally the backyard had ample grass for volleyball and gymnastic activities of their children. Over time, the grassy areas were eliminated and replaced by trees and shrubs. Other garden features include a swimming pool and outdoor dining area. A large desert wash that runs to the west of the property is lined with large river rock. The owners are enthusiastic about garden art and have several sculptures in the garden, including a work designed by Michael Anderson specifically for the garden, contemporary works by Ed Mell, Su Douglas, and LeRoy Neiman and others.
Plantings include specimens of Argentine saguaro and Palo adan (a species of ocotillo) in the front garden. Salvia (clevelandia, greggii, and leugantha) provide spring color in the back garden, and Queen of the Night stems bloom profusely on summer evenings. Plantings of bougainvilleas provide color alongside plantings of aloes, sage, and yellow bells.
The owners' of this garden have a long association with the Desert Botanical Garden and Phoenix Art Museum. In 2014, the garden was featured on a tour of private gardens for benefactors of the Desert Botanical Garden.
Persons associated with the garden include: Cesar Mazier Landscaping (landscape designer, 1999- ); Michael Anderson (sculptor,1999); Joe Tyler (metal flower sculpture, 1998); Billingsley (urban garden, 2013).

Biographical / Historical:
The Smithsonian Jazz Oral History Program, a project of "America's Jazz Heritage, A Partnership of the Lila Wallace-Reader's Digest Fund and the Smithsonian Institution" initiative was created in 1992. More than 150 in-depth oral history interviews were conducted from 1992 through 2002. The collection was transferred to the Archives Center of the National Museum of American History in 2000. Now part of the National Museum of American History's American Music History Initiatives, the Smithsonian Jazz Oral History Program continues to conduct interviews as funding is available.

The Smithsonian Jazz Oral History Program was established to document significant jazz musicians, performers, producers, and business associates in their own words and voices. Program staff contacted and worked with potential interviewees to arrange for interviews. Each interview was conducted by a jazz authority and was recorded on digital audiotape by a professional audio engineer. The interviews averaged 6 hours in length and covered a wide range of topics including early years, initial involvement in music, generally, and jazz specifically, as well as experiences in the jazz music world, including relationships to musicians. The original DAT interview tapes were then dubbed to audiocassettes and CD to create protection and access copies. More recent interviews have been recorded using fully digital technology and the interviews are preserved and made availbel as digital files.

A number of the interviews were conducted as part of the Ella Fitzgerald Oral History Project of the Jazz Oral History Program. Funded by the Ella Fitzgerald Charitable Foundation, these interviews focus on the life and work of Ella Fitzgerald. The National Endowments for the Arts Jazz Masters Oral Histories Program continues to support new interviews with NEA Jazz Masters.

For more information about jazz concerts, education, collections, Jazz Appreciation Month, and the Jazz Master orchestra, visit Smithsonian Jazz.
Provenance:
The interviews were made for the Smithsonian Institution under the auspices of the Smithsonian Jazz Oral History Program supported by America's Jazz Heritage, funded by the Lila Wallace-Reader's Digest Fund, the Smithsonian Institution, and the National Endowment for the Arts Jazz Masters Oral Histories Program. Additional interviews were conducted with support from the Ella Fitzgerald Charitable Foundation.

Exhibitions and Programs

Collection Creator:
Los Angeles Institute of Contemporary Art  Search this
Extent:
(Boxes 3-13; 9.5 linear feet)
Type:
Archival materials
Date:
1974-1987
Scope and Contents note:
Found within this series are the records documenting LAICA's exhibition and public programming. Exhibition Committee Files and Exhibition Files provide comprehensive documentation of LAICA's exhibition history, including exhibitions curated by LAICA staff and notable guest curators Walter Hopps, Llyn Foulks, and Mike Kelley. Focusing on broad and varied contemporary visual arts, the exhibitions included established and emerging artists of the Los Angeles area, the West Coast, Europe, and Asia. Contemporary Italian and Japanese artists were widely exhibited. Contemporary social and environmental issues were also covered in exhibitions, such as The James Bay Project, which documented the impact of hydroelectric stations in northwestern Quebec.

Extensive files are found for several significant LAICA exhibitions, such as Nine Senior California Painters, 1974-1975, which featured the work of Florence Arnold, Nick Brigante, Hans Burkhardt, Annita Delano, Lorser Feitelson, Peter Krasnow, Helen Lundeberg, John McLaughlin, and Emerson Woelffer, an exhibition of Leroy Neiman and Andy Warhol, 1981-1982, Cabin, Temple, Trailer curated by Charles Moore in 1983, Il Modo Italiano, 1984 that featured the work of 10 contemporary Italian artists, and Australia: Nine Contemporary Artists, 1984. The organization provided opportunities for emerging artists as well, including a "painting of the month" exhibition series.

Program Files document LAICA's public programming, including lecture series, workshops, and conferences. This series contains files for innovative fundraising events, such as fashion shows, film screenings, and "LAICA Sells Out", an innovative program that invited donors and artists to purchase portions of LAICA's exhibition space to display their artwork. Extensive documentation of LAICA's Artist Registry of Southern California artists and the CETA-funded Artist-in-Residence program is found here as well.

Also found in this series are LAICA's Artist Files, comprised of printed materials, photographs, and resumes of artists, as well as scattered correspondence.
Arrangement note:
The Exhibition and Programs series is arranged into 4 subseries:

5.1: Exhibition Committee Files, mid 1970s-1987

5.2: Exhibition Files, 1974-1987

5.3: Program Files, 1975-1986
