1968 Miami Pop Festival pleased most, offended a few
"Pop Festival Fools the Doubters," wrote Herald staff writer Angel Castilo Jr. in the January 5, 1969 issue, looking back on the Miami Pop Festival of December 28-30, 1968. Problems had been few, he reported, and performers and fans alike seemed pleased. "The only thing that went amiss was the reaction of the local press to one of the most harmless events ever staged in the South Florida area. Many seemed indignant at the physical appearance of some of the people attending, and failed to realize that to the young people there the festival was a special opportunity to be with their peers and feel free in their particular environment."

Artist Christo created Surrounded Islands in 1983
Thirty months and $3.1 million in the creation, the Surrounded Islands were 11 Biscayne Bay bits of land dressed in pink by artist Christo Javacheff in 1983. Herald staff writer Laura Misch wrote: "The art-lovers explained it (they thought) to the art-ignorant; the environmentalists, who stood by helplessly, mostly hated it; and Christo had the Chamber of Commerce types doing cartwheels of joy at all the glorious (and free) publicity the area received for Surrounded Islands." Unfortunately, few color photos of the project are found in the archives of The Miami Herald.
