|Detail from a preliminary sketch for Levitated Mass (2011) by Michael Heizer|
A 340-ton granite megalith is coming our way!
On Thursday morning, the Levitated Mass will be resting in the nearby city of Carson, at Vermont Avenue just north of Carson Street. Then, on Thursday night, it'll skirt our fine community by journeying along a zig-zag path: north on Vermont, west on 190th, north on Normandie, west on Artesia, and north on Western, leaving the South Bay behind it.
For more info, check out LACMA's Gawker Guide for Levitated Mass.
This isn't an everyday occurrence. So, come on out to see it at rest or, if you're a nocturnal person, try to catch it moving by night.
Here's a video:
(BTW, don't forget that this weekend is the closing of our current show at the TAM. Check it out before they're gone!!!)
