In the early morning hours just before dawn on March 10th, 2012, the transporter carrying the megalith used to create Michael Heizer's Levitated Mass at LACMA arrived at the museum. The transporter traveled through four counties (Riverside, San Bernardino, Orange, and Los Angeles) and 22 cities in a carefully orchestrated journey that attracted thousands of bystanders. At 340 tons, the boulder is one of the largest moved since ancient times.
