Rock almost ready to roll…again
As the season draws near, artist Michael Heizer’s Levitated Mass, which consists of the 340-ton boulder transported from Riverside County to LA last month, and a 456-foot-long slot constructed at LACMA is getting ready for all to see. LACMA visitors will walk along the slot, which descends to fifteen feet deep, taking them underneath the rock before ascending back.
Heizer conceived the artwork in 1968, but it took him some time to find the right rock, and took over two years to transport it.
WCS Permits and sister company, Right of Way Inc. worked with the boulder’s transporter, Emmert International to take the rock on an eleven night journey so it could safely travel on streets at very slow speeds.
WCS and Right of Way worked tirelessly with various agencies to obtain permits and close down various streets while the load was in transport.
