James Turrell's life's work in progress, Roden Crater, where he is turning the 400,000-year-old, two-mile-wide natural cinder volcanic crater into a massive naked-eye observatory, is finally set to open next year.
With the support of the Dia Art Foundation and other donors, Roden Crater’s completion may come within a year. Few have seen its progress, some have been fortunate enough to visit the site with Turell’s guidance, while others have found their own way onto the property by trespassing. When Roden Crater opens, it will be an art pilgrimage of a lifetime. via
