The “House of Eternal Return”
1352 Rufina Circle | Santa Fe
Be sure to visit Meow Wolf while you are in Santa Fe – For countless art enthusiasts, the 20,000 square foot immersive art exhibit in the new Meow Wolf art complex is a good enough reason to drive to Santa Fe, which is already famous for its art community.
What was once a vacant bowling alley is now the home of Meow Wolf, an arts production company that converted the facility into a creative hub. The new hot spot opened in March and has already had over 150,000 visitors eager to see their first permanent installation, “House of Eternal Return.”
“I keep telling everyone that I meet that they really need to check out Meow Wolf because it’s honestly absolutely mind blowing and so well done and well thought out, and you can just see all the love and thought that was put into it,” said Cathy Chen, co-owner of the maker space Fab Lab El Paso.
It’s easy to see why Chen is a fan of the installation, which combined the innovative thinking of 135 artists to create 70 different interactive spaces.
“There’s one place where there’s all these trees and there’s mushrooms growing on them,” said John Feins, the public relations manager for Tourism Santa Fe. “You touch the mushrooms and they light up and make different tones and sounds. And so there’s a lot of immersiveness, a lot of 3-D printing and electronic programming.”
The “House of Eternal Return” places visitors in the imagined Victorian house of a family who leave behind mysterious objects that transport spectators into various “dimensions.”
Meow Wolf also has a 300-person music venue, an arcade, four tree houses and an interactive cave system.
