Themes Across Cultures
Down Jersey Folklife Center

In this exhibit, explore commonly shared topics among South Jersey cultures such as beliefs, stories, legends, ritual, regional, and occupational traditions. Interpreted through objects, archives, and educational programs are three major themes: 1. Becoming Someone Else – the use of masks in ritual and celebrations of various cultures; 2. Learning from a Master – folk art apprenticeships in South Jersey; and 3. Behind the Story – exploring legends, stories, and beliefs among the diverse communities of our region.
