Michael Heizer's 'Levitated Mass' Earthwork Coming To LACMA

Giant Boulder Coming To LACMA: Michael Heizer's 'Levitated Mass'
|

As you may have read in Sunday's Los Angeles Times, we've got a new major artwork on its way to LACMA--Michael Heizer's Levitated Mass. We are beginning prep work for its installation this month and it will make its official debut on campus in November.
So, what is it? The short if incomplete answer is it's a 340-ton, 21'-6" high boulder that Heizer discovered in a quarry in Riverside some years back. (In terms of height, the boulder is roughly as tall as the Resnick Pavilion. It's big.)
