LeLACMA smalllogovitated Mass by artist Michael Heizer opens at LACMA! Composed of a 456-foot-long slot, which was constructed on LACMA’s campus, it features a 340-ton granite megalith which is placed over the slot….(.whew…I think I’ll look at from off to the side….just in case).

As with other works by the artist, such as Double Negative (1969), the monumental negative form is key to the experience of the artwork.

Heizer conceived of the artwork in 1968, but discovered an appropriate boulder only decades later, in Riverside County, California.
(I love this) LACMA is offering FREE museum admission from June 24 to July 1, 2012, for residents in zip codes along the transport route. Click here to find out more.

Sorry for the rest of you….it’s $15.00.  But stay and enjoy the day at LACMA.
