The ones who walk away from Omelas is an Ursula LeGuin story about a world where the problems and suffering of humankind are solved, and where what appears to be a perfect world is formed. Except that it’s all at the expense of one solitary child, who sits underground in a cell. This horrific reality leads a small band of people to walk away from Omelas. And that is where the story ends. But were we to continue the logic of the story, the deserters might wind up in a range of different situations. LeGuin wrote that she thought of the name Omelas when she read the words Salem, Oregon, backwards in her rearview mirror as she drove from the city on a highway.

It’s the twilight of the Grand Buffet, but people still remember it. According to Eric, who is lending us this space for free, when it first opened about 20 years ago it was so popular that every day at lunch the traffic in the parking lot would fill up and overflow with traffic. For decades, the vegetable oil from restaurant was used to heat the Glass shop. This was during the 90’s and early 2000’s. Today, a wood stove is used. Over the years the original owners of the restaurant left, and the restaurant changed hands. Sometime in the early 2000’s, members of a gang called Triad began to rent the space, and a few years later it was shut down by the FBI for charges related to money laundering and human trafficking. The people who worked there were only paid for half of their 80 hour work week and slept in bunk beds inside the restaurant. After briefly reopening under new owners it was again shut down for health code violations and has been empty ever since. Over the past few weeks the space has been cleaned, debris has been cleared out, temporary lights have been installed, and over 100 artists have installed their artwork here.
