As spotted at Artforum, and with my emphasis:
The Skystone Foundation has announced that James Turrell’s Roden Crater project near Flagstaff, Arizona will be opened from with limited access reserved at five-thousand dollars per person.
Roden Crater, the unfinished magnum opus of Turrell, is closed to the public, so this is one of those rare opportunities for those with both taste and wealth. On top of the $5,000, tax-deductible "donation," the travel company overseeing the package is charging an addition $1,500 to "cover a portion of visitor's expenses while they're staying on site," again per the Artforum blurb. The donation money goes toward theSkystone Foundation, "the organization responsible for the fundraising, administration and realization of James Turrell’s Roden Crater project."
