Levitated Mass exhibit debuts at LACMA
LOS ANGELES (KABC) -- The giant boulder that was moved through the Southland like a rock star makes its debut as a piece of art on Sunday.
The 340-ton boulder made the journey from Riverside County to Los Angeles in March to become part of the Los Angeles County Museum of Art's "Levitated Mass" art exhibit.
The massive rock was taken from a Riverside quarry and hauled more than 100 miles through 22 cities. As part of the exhibit, the boulder will be positioned to appear as if it's floating.
A public dedication ceremony was held at 11 a.m. The museum is offering free admission through July 1 to residents in communities through which the boulder passed. Residents must show proof of living in a zip code along the route.
