To celebrate the grand opening of Michael Heizer’s Levitated Mass on Sunday, June 24, the Los Angeles County Museum of Art is offering free admission to Cerritos and Artesia residents who were impacted by the movement of the 340-ton boulder in February for the week of June 24-July 1.
With proof of residence, such as a driver’s license or California I.D., residents of communities that were impacted by the rock’s journey from Riverside County to LACMA will be granted free admission to the museum’s galleries during the weeklong stretch.
“The route to the Museum of Art took the rock through most of the Fourth District, including stops in Rowland Heights, Lakewood, and Long Beach, and this is our small way of saying thank-you to our residents for their patience,” said Supervisor Don Knabe. “This is an incredible opportunity for residents who have never visited LACMA to experience all the art and culture the museum has to offer.”

The LACMA rock passed through the city of Cerritos on the evening of March 5, receiving much fanfare from local residents who watched the enormous mass pass through city streets overnight.
