    And all because it's "art."

    Combined with its custom, massive trailer, the rock will weigh 1.2 million pounds...as it takes an eight-day journey from Riverside to the LA County Museum of Art. But only after 100 different agencies worked to clear its path by moving power lines, cutting trees, etc.

    We wanted to go LACMA last week, but it doesn't open until noon on Fridays.
    If you've never been there, it's next to the Labrea tar pits, which are extremly cool.
