Photo Diary: Opening of ‘Levitated Mass’ at LACMA.
All photos by C-Monster and El Celso.
There was lots of speechifying at the opening of Levitated Mass. We chose to sit well away from it — under the shade of a cluster of palms planted by Robert Irwin.
Grip-n-grin, people: Michael Heizer (in the yellow shirt with arms extended), with Mayor Tony (smiley dude w/white cuffs) and Michael Govan (far right), doing the first official walk-through.
Waiting for the first crowds to pour through Levitated Mass.
And pour through they did.
It was like a Black Friday sale.
The paparazzi were out in force…
… and so were the critics.
Things that are not part of the LACMA install — but should be.
Michael Heizer’s Levitated Mass will be on view at the L.A. County Museum of Art through…forever.
