n April Fools Day, 1997, artist Tina Mion and Allan Affeldt coasted into Winslow, Arizona, in a van packed with an old basset hound, rabbits and a single chair — no joke. Graduates of University of California-Irvine, Affeldt planned to advise a local non-profit on how to save the town’s most iconic building.
