Lots of people out there watching the Levitated Mass boulder slowly crawl toward Wilshire Boulevard. At this hour it's still trying to make the turn up Western Avenue from Adams Boulevard and climb north across the 10 freeway. "Hardest turn of the night," says the LACMA Twitter feed. "Once we get thru, we'll have a better ETA." The turn required removal of a streetlight at the corner. Between now and dawn, the convoy should roll west on Wilshire, turn north on Fairfax Avenue, back east on 6th Street and end on the LACMA lawn — more than 100 miles since leaving Riverside County 11 days ago.
