LACMA Rock's Arrival in L.A. Tonight: Everything You Need to Know
LACMA's famed 340-ton rock, part of its new public sculpture Levitated Mass, will arrive at the museum tonight. But will it attract the same kind of party that it did in Bixby Knolls?

Tonight at around 10 or 11 pm, the rock will depart from its location on Figueroa Street just north of Florence Avenue and head to LACMA. Museum staff don't know exactly when the rock will arrive at its location at 5905 Wilshire Blvd., but are giving a broad estimate of between 2 a.m. and 6 a.m.
The rock will go:
*North on Figueroa (past USC)
*Left on West Adams Boulevard
*Right on Western Avenue
*Left on Wilshire Boulevard
