“Serious patrons of the arts” can at last get a chance to visit James Turrell’s Roden Crater, the “naked eye observatory” the artist began working on in Arizona 38 years ago. From May 14 to 17, 20 people per day will get the opportunity to pay $6,500 (meals and travel not included) to experience the iconic—and remote—land art work. The brunt of that fee is a donation to the Skystone Foundation, the artist’s nonprofit, which should make about a million dollars on the fundraiser.
