And A New Tradition is Born: Boulder Holding

New, 39 comments

Much like every tourist who visits the Leaning Tower of Pisa has to take a picture pretending to hold up the tower, a similar tradition has been born in LA with the opening of the Levitated Mass installation at LACMA. For generations to come, Angelenos and toursist from around the world will pop a squat and pretend to lift the heavy boulder for the enjoyment of their Facebook friends. Here's just a few of the posers we saw today. We'll have more photos from the Levitated Mass opening this week.
