From June to September of 2013, crowds were flocking to the Guggenheim for a chance to stare up at the famous rotunda, recast as an enormous volume filled with shifting artificial and natural light. Titled Aten Reign, the show cemented installation artist James Turrell‘s reputation as a major cultural force in New York City. But now that the fanfare has died down, the Flagstaff, Arizona-based artist and his wife have sold their apartment at 26 Gramercy Park South for $2.1 million, according to city records released today.

Unlike his fantastical, conceptual art installations, Turrell’s home was completely functional. He combined units 5A and B into one large space with the stunning Gramercy Park view as its focus. The one-bedroom apartment has an expansive great room that incorporates the kitchen and four large park-facing windows. In addition to the bragging rights that will be bestowed upon the new owner, he or she will also get a much-coveted key to the park.
