OK Market

Brook Knoll School at the OK Market

Pollyanna found some old yearbooks from Brook Knoll Elementary school, 1965-1967.
What a sweet cast of characters!
Everybody got fresh new paper clothes and went to play on the boarded up windows of the abandoned OK Market.

Souvenirs at Cyclovia

Pollyanna’s Souvenir Stand appeared at Cyclovia, on South Fourth Avenue at the OK Market.

A self-service honor system table: objects painted or engraved with Souvenir Of Tucson
Inspired by
1. Childhood memories of longing, longing to go into souvenir stores and buy some little thing.
2. The delicious non-sequitur nature of souvenirs that have nothing to do with the place they are sold.

3. Deep admiration for self pay, honor system roadside farm stands.
4. Years of feeling the absurd ambiguity of having to price artwork.

By the end of the day, most of the souvenirs were gone.

OK Market

Wouldn’t it be nice if, instead of a boarded up shell of a building, there was a bakery/greengrocer/cafe, with neighbors stopping in for a dozen eggs and a quart of milk and a chat?
