The Roden Crater, artist James Turrell’s unfinished land art in the Arizona desert, will be open to a select group of people for a fundraising event–meant only for “serious patrons of the arts,” from May 14 to 17, reports Art News.

The artist acquired the land the crater rests on in 1977, and has since been working to transform the interior into a “naked eye observatory." Although very few people have seen the inside of Turrell's land art piece, but one of them is the artist's friend Chuck Close, as recounted in a New York Times Magazine profile of Turrell, who made the crater handicap-accessible for the wheelchair-bound his friend.
