Quick Glance: Organisers Defend 'Inflatable Wonders' Amid Artist Criticism
  • Organisers of a waterfront installation featuring inflatable, white sculptures of famous landmarks are defending the exhibition following the artist's criticism of the display as 'very ugly.' She expressed her dissatisfaction with the final design being implemented without her approval.

  • The controversy arose shortly after the installation of the large-scale replicas along the Central Harbourfront by the organiser - Central Venue Management (CVM) - each surrounded by massive concrete blocks and guy ropes.

  • In an article released by Yahoo over the weekend, the artist from Armenia, known as Joann, mentioned that although she had given authorization for her designs to be used, she had not been given a preview of the completed display.

  • As part of the annual SummerFest along the waterfront, the display of inflatable wonders showcases five world landmarks - Stonehenge in the UK, the Easter Island Moai in Chile, the Pyramids of Giza in Egypt, the Leaning Tower of Pisa in Italy, and the Arc de Triomphe in France.

Quick Glance: Bay Area Heat Wave: 10 Charts and Maps Insights
  • This week is anticipated to bring the highest temperatures to the Bay Area since September 2022, as a result of a high-pressure system over the West Coast that has led the National Weather Service to issue excessive heat warnings until next Tuesday, with temperatures expected to surpass 100 degrees in parts of the South Bay, East Bay, and North Bay.
