Lucas Oil moves 340 ton boulder as it heads to Los Angeles County Museum
The Los Angeles County Museum of Art's giant rock is getting its own rock party Wednesday in Long Beach.
The 340-ton boulder, part of "Levitated Mass," stopped in the Bixby Knolls area at 3626 Atlantic Ave. in between 36th and 37th streets.
The privately funded Los Angeles County project to transport the giant rock inspired Long Beach Councilmember James Johnson and Bixby Knolls Business Improvement Association to have a little fun with it while it was passing through town, and host a party in its honor.
The party will feature music, songs all whose titles have the word rock in them, photo ops with the rock, river rock decorating, food, live artists and the Knolls Rangers.
The colossal-sized boulder is part of an up-coming sculpture exhibit at LACMA. Transporting it to LACMA has not been easy. A giant specially built trailer was made to carry the rock from Riverside to the museum.
