The 10-day journey begins tonight for the huge boulder from a Riverside quarry destined as the centerpiece of Michael Heizer’s Levitated Mass at LACMA. It is so huge it has to travel on a custom-built transporter that requires road and utility accommodations throughout the trip (it’s nearly 3 traffic lanes wide!), and must take a very circuitous route for safey. As it can only move at 5mph, all travel will take place at night. During the day it will be shrink-wrapped.
