Pic of the Day: Sept 2

This is Levitated Mass - an art installation at LACMA (the Los Angeles County Museum of Art).  It is interesting, but the story of how it got there is almost more interesting.
.

The boulder was brought from the desert into mid-Wilshire district by huge hauler.  It could only go, like 10 miles per hour, and had to use wide roads that could support the gigantic weight.  There was a whole story that made national news about it (LINK).  Suffice it to say, it was a grand kurfuffle.
.
As "Art".. well, I don't know.  But everyone does get to take this picture.
