Inland Empire gives up 'Levitated Mass'
RUBIDOUX – The rock is finally on a roll.
It’ll take several days to transport a 340-ton boulder from its birthplace in a Rubidoux quarry to its new home at the Los Angeles County Museum of Art.
The permitting process for the 65-mile journey took the past 6-months, according to Caltrans’ Shelly Lombardo.
“The bridges it will cross had to be checked for their soundness.”
Its journey began Tuesday night. The boulder is being moved at not more than 5-miles an hour.
Once in place, the monolith will become part of a permanent exhibit called Levitated Mass. It will give the illusion that it is floating. (INT)
