Meow Wolf’s grand opening is finally today! The Meow Wolf Art Complex and House of Eternal Return has become one of the most anticipated art complex openings in recent time. The group has sparked the curiosity of Santa Fe locals for months. Even though we are all excited to see their exhibits, Meow Wolf’s grand opening will mean something more than them simply opening their doors. It will spread the art scene beyond downtown and towards the south side of town.
It is no secret that Santa Fe has a vibrant and rich art scene. Canyon Road, the Plaza and the Railyard continue to provide an art scene for locals and visitors that is composed with some of the world’s best. However, there hasn’t been much of a scene south of St. Francis. The art seems to stay confined to a small area of town, that is until now. Meow Wolf will drive the art scene further into Santa Fe making our City Different a complete art attraction.
It’s only fitting that Meow Wolf will be much different than the downtown galleries we are accustom to. The group creates immersive, multimedia experiences that transport audiences of all ages into fantastic realms of storytelling. Meow Wolf’s art experiences are like video games made real, giving the audience fictional worlds to immerse themselves in and explore. It will be a completely different experience and one that we have been looking forward to.
Meow Wolf and George RR Martin joined forces to create The House of Eternal Return, a 20,000 square foot permanent exhibition that will take the audience into a world of imagination. The Meow Wolf Art Complex will also have 19 affordable artist studios, two rotating gallery spaces, a learning center and a performance venue that will offer unique nighttime events. The complex is the first of what many hope will be the future Siler Art District.
Now we can follow our curiosity into the trippy, futuristic art that is Meow Wolf. The Meow Wolf Art Complex and House of Eternal Return is set to open its doors with a public opening on Friday, March 18th at 2:00pm at 1352 Rufina Circle. The opening will go from 2:00pm-2:00am. On Thursday, March 17th, Meow Wolf will host an opening night Gala reception for artists, investors, and VIP members.
