The 340-ton megalith that is to be part of artist Michael Heizer’s monumental artwork, Levitated Mass,barrived at the Los Angeles County Museum of Art (LACMA) on Saturday, March 10.

Due to its massive size, the boulder has required a complex and thoroughly reviewed transportation process from the quarry in Riverside County to the museum, with movement happening only at night. Once complete, its transportation (made possible by Hanjin Shipping) will have taken place over the course of eleven nights, traveling through four counties and twenty-two cities.
