Egg Rolls, Egg Creams, and Empanadas Festival 2021: Folk Arts

Folk arts are centered around community. Folk groups reflect and communicate their values, ideas, and beliefs across generations. They are a part of lifecycle events, holiday celebrations, religious observances, and everyday life. Folk arts are passed down from parent to child, elder to younger, or master to apprentice. In the process, the arts are often adapted to accommodate changing situations. But their roots in tradition are ever present. To close out the festival, join us in a tour of Felipe Rangel's home and studio, featuring the brilliant Vejigante Mask of Puerto Rico. We will be joined by artists Ling Tang and Rachel Asarnow, who will discuss the similarities and differences between Chinese and Jewish paper cutting and demonstrate the unique art forms and describe their traditions. This program will take place virtually over Zoom. You will receive a link a day before the date of the program. ā€” About the 2021 Virtual Festival: Celebrate the cultural diversity of the Lower East Side, Chinatown, and Loisaida at the Museum at Eldridge Street's Egg Rolls, Egg Creams, and Empanadas Festival 2021! After 20 years, this festival will be held for the first time ever, entirely over the virtual format due to the COVID-19 global pandemic. Each Sunday in June, immerse yourself in the folklife of Eastern European Jewish, Chinese, and Puerto Rican communities in this corner of New York City through music, dance, crafts, ritual practices, foodways, and other creative expressions. Many of these communities and businesses have suffered due to the effects of COVID-19 and increased xenophobia and discrimination. This year's festival aims to provide meaningful appreciation of difference and shared identity. Join us in honoring the spirit of this ever-changing neighborhood and open a dialogue about the immigrant experience in New York City today. See the schedule below for more information.
