"Levitated Mass" Rolls Through Bixby Knolls
Heads up Bixby Knolls and California Heights!
Los Angeles County Museum of Art is scheduled to transport a 340-ton boulder entitled "Levitated Mass"
through Bixby Knolls, Wednesday, March 7
and it will be parked between 36th St. and 37th St. on Atlantic Avenue during the day. The transporting of the boulder will take place from 11pm-5am. The boulder which is part of an upcoming sculpture installation at LACMA is being transported on a specially built trailer that is approximately 200 feet long and 25-30 feet wide. LACMA website.
This is a County of Los Angeles project (and privately funded) so Councilmember James Johnson and the Bixby Knolls Business Improvement Association thought we should just have some fun with all of this.
Between Noon and 7:00pm on Wednesday
, you are invited to come out and enjoy a party for this spectacle featuring music (our DJ playing songs that feature "rock" in the title), live artists, the Knolls Ranger, river rock decorating, photo ops with the rock, and more.
Please note: Atlantic Avenue will experience some traffic delays as there will be only one lane of traffic open on either side of the parked trailer during the day.
Bixby Knolls will receive significant media coverage as being one of the best stops along the route for this art exhibit headed to Los Angeles. LACMA has been advertising Bixby Knolls to the local media and through its social media and we will share our party plans with them, too. We are hoping to see a good turn out to see this oddity and to give support to our local businesses.
