Michael Heizer’s Rock at LACMA

"There's a very ancient tradition, uh, in cultures ranging from Egyptian cultures, the Olmec in Mexico of moving monoliths to mark a place.  And I think the idea is that LACMA's campus really is a center for Los Angeles, cultural center, its a multi-cultural center, and, and, and the rock will mark it very physically, very, in a very weighty way, timeless and light manner also, as you walk under it." - Michael Heizer
