Levitated Mass is the story of a rock star, the artist behind the sensation, and a $10 million, 22-city tour. Prominently displayed outside the Los Angeles County Museum of Art, Land artist Michael Heizer’s Levitated Mass gained international recognition during its installation in 2012, as the 340-ton granite boulder crawled through neighborhoods on a 206-wheeled trailer.

The film weaves together Heizer’s passions, a museum’s dreams, and the uniting of a city, asking the question: What is art? (89 min.)
