LACMA Rock Succumbs to Rain

The boulder at the center of LACMA’s “Levitated Mass” was billed as the largest thing transported since, like, medieval times or whatever they said. At 340-tons it is indestructible. Unless it rains a little, of course.

Would-be visitors to the big giant LACMA rock Monday morning were met with this sign:

Now, I understand concrete can sometimes get slippery when wet. But that is easy to combat by putting a rough texture on it or putting some other stuff on it (what do you want from me?; I’m not a mason). I mean, sidewalks all over the world are concrete and they remain open when it rains.

I Love Los Angeles, But… sometimes the decisions made in this city just make me laugh.
