Saturday, June 16


Photographs by Katie Charles  

“[This art] changed the world. I was watching people here—especially people my age—and the art was bringing them a lot of joy.”
—Valerie Hodgson, 54, art director, Madison, Wisconsin


“A lot of it’s corny. Kids our age who think it’s really cool are just middle-class poseurs with money dressing up. It’s hard to take seriously.”
—Sarah Berkowitz, 22, new graduate, Morningside Heights


“I liked it. There are lots of patterns and designs. They’re fun! It was different back then—there were more bright colors.”
—Sofia Baluyut, 6, kindergartner, Brooklyn


“I want to be back long ago and see how they lived. To feel that, and understand, you must take the drugs. I’m trying to understand, and I can’t.”
—Sara Trajkovska, 22, journalist, Skopje, Macedonia


“I kept thinking about that scene in The Big Lebowski where Jeffrey Lebowski is yelling, ‘Get a job! The bums lost!’”
—Quang Truong, 28, architect, Fort Greene
