If there is any indication of the cultural import and effect of the “millennials” – a term I dislike for reasons I will explain later – look no further than America’s malls. The Baby Boomer hubris and NIMBYism that sent malls into further and further orbits from city centers has come home to roost and it promises to change the face of retail in a big way.

- Asian Art Museum gets its record with giant 2,405-person lotus
By Rachel Swan - Saturday Jul 15, 2017
“We chose the lotus, because in Asian traditions it ... rises over muddy waters without being contaminated,” said Jay Xu, director of the Asian Art Museum, who helped lead Saturday’s effort Saturday to break the Guinness World Record. A motley group of volunteers clinched the title at 1:30 p.m, handily beating the last winner — a 2,297-person lilac formed three years ago in Rochester, New York. Among them were elderly people who’d hobbled into the “Lotus Live” event with canes, parents carrying young children in slings and passersby who’d glimpsed the hubbub and decided to join. “And now we get to wear these trash bags,” Baker said, slipping his poncho on. Christopher King-Hall, who said he’d heard about the event on public radio, came with his wife, mother and two sons. Two-and-a-half year-old Cameron sat wide-eyed in a stroller while one-and-a-half year-old Damon clung to King-Hall’s chest. Pitched both as a “human be-in” and a piece of colorful piece of performance art, the lotus event was tied to the Asian Art Museum’s “Flower Power” exhibition, which focuses on six flowers —roses, tulips, chrysanthemums, lotuses, plum blossoms and cherry blossoms — that all serve as freighted symbols in Asian cultures. Volunteers had to trace the outline on a lawn in Civic Center Plaza, using irrigation flags to mark the perimeter. The poncho-wearers held their pose for five minutes, while event organizers gritted their teeth.
