The drape is gone.
The Rock is revealed.
It's a beauty!
I visited the Rock at LACMA on Sunday morning and was happy to see that the green drape has been removed. There remains the debris that accompanies finishing touches, like drop cloths, piles of decomposed granite, earth-moving equipment and a wagon filled with very large water tanks. There are workmen in white outfits like painters. I was hoping I could see what they were up to but I had to get on with my day.
Landscaping seems to be underway or "land-scraping" maybe. It's barren at this point.
The banner that describes Michael Heizer's project is posted on the construction fence. It looks like it will hold up - only 13 days left to the official opening on June 24!
