This monumental outdoor artwork installed at LACMA is an amazing thing to experience! It is called "Levitated Mass, by the artist Michael Heizer. The rock is a 340-ton granite megalith which was found in Riverside, over one hundred miles away, and was transported through the streets to get to the museum, which took eleven nights. The boulder is perched on top of a 456-foot-long concrete slot that is fifteen feet deep under the rock. What a brilliant idea this is and I found it to be a powerful experience to go down the path, and then to stand under the monolith.
