Here Comes the Rock A 340-ton, 21' 6" high granite boulder the size of a two-story house left the Stone Valley quarry near Riverside last Tuesday on its way to the LA County Museum of Art.

Privately funded, it's still been attacked as an outrageous waste of money as well as a desecration of nature. Tonight it's in La Mirada, and later on it'll head to Lakewood, with arrival at LACMA scheduled for Saturday.
