The rock will remain where it currently is for the next 3,500 years. (Who came up with that number?)
Heizer once dug a series of holes in the Sierra Nevada and is currently working on a three square mile project called "City". He has been working on "City" since 1970.

This exhibition cost upwards of $10 M.

You tell me.
