On February 28th, 2012, the Los Angeles County Museum of Art began transport of a 340-ton granite megalith from a quarry in Riverside County to the museum's campus for the making of Levitated Mass, a sculpture by artist Michael Heizer. On Day 7 of the journey, the transporter paused in Bixby Knolls, where local officials hosted a street party to welcome it to town. Our thanks to the people of Bixby Knolls, and those at every stop along the route, which passes through four counties (Riverside, San Bernardino, Orange, and Los Angeles) and twenty-two cities.

The eventual work, expected to open early summer of 2012, wlll be composed of a 456-foot-long slot over which the megalith will be suspended.
