Back in March, a 340-ton granite boulder made an 11-night crawl through the streets of LA on the back of a specially made transporter, from Riverside to the Los Angeles County Museum of Art.  That boulder is now the centerpiece of Michael Heizer’s work, called Levitated Mass, which sits over a 15-foot-deep, 456-foot-long concrete slot in the ground.  An artwork over 40 years in the making, the enormity of the undertaking as well as the size of the entire installation has drawn a likeness to the ancient tradition of creating artworks from stone.  This art installation is now open to the public at LACMA and from June 24th through July 1st, they are offering free museum admission for residents living in zip codes along the transportation route!
