MOA Galleria - Chris-Town Art Show
Phoenix, Arizona - circa 1970s
Art show time at Chris-Town Mall! I remember back in the '70s and '80s it was actually a pretty common occurrence to walk into the local mall and find it had been almost entirely taken over by zombies... er, I mean "mall shows". Art shows, antique shows, coin shows, boat shows, baseball card shows, and the like, they were all welcomed at the malls in those days.
That practice pretty much fizzled out in the '90s at most of my local malls, and is quite rare to see now. But during the 1980s, especially, it seemed there was some kind of mall show going on nearly every weekend around my house. And this photograph above kind of reminds me of those days.
