POP-Pourri: Pop Culture in Arizona

April 17, 2015 @ 5:30 pm - 6:30 pm

| Free

Post-war Arizona really popped and added to the pop culture known as Americana. The housing pop for the returning military personnel who were moving to Arizona changed the landscape. Iconic restaurants such as KFC, McDonald’s, and Bob’s Big Boy owe Arizona for their POP culture status. Vestiges of these post-war days are still around and Shore tells their stories, ensuring that the memories of our vibrant past stay alive.

 

SB marshall shore slye 4 - WEBMarshall Shore, Arizona’s Hip Historian. His passion is uncovering the weird, the wonderful, and the obscure treasures from our past: the semi-forgotten people, places, and events that have made us who we are today. Shore uses storytelling magic, found film footage, old photographs, ephemera, and artifacts to bring our state’s heritage to life in entertaining and educational presentations.
