POP-Pourri: Pop Culture in Arizona
April 17, 2015 @ 5:30 pm - 6:30 pmFree
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.
