The Big Meow

Meow Wolf opened "The House of Eternal Return" with a roar and a bang last week.

We had a "small" (hoo hah) friends and family 'soft opening' on Wednesday. On Thursday was the Grand VIP Gala. On Friday, Saturday, and Sunday the doors opened to the public for the first time. Amanda Palmer, Jason Webley, and the Handsome Family played. Wonders were unveiled, caves and treehouses and haunted mansions and space gates explored, refrigerators opened...



The reviews, I am thrilled to say, were uniformly raves. Here's a few:

I am told that 5500 hundred people visited the House on its opening weekend. Most of them went away smiling... especially the kids, who loved the place... but there's plenty there for adults to enjoy as well.

Our hope is that Meow Wolf and the House of Eternal Return will be one of Santa Fe's premiere attractions for many, many years to come. Come visit when you're in town. I promise you, you've never seen anything quite like it.

Thank you.
Hi George,

I just wanted to say thank you for creating ASOIAF. I've been going through a rough time in life lately and reading your books makes me feel happy and allows me to appreciate the complexity of human nature, which most books, quite frankly, fail to do.

I'm visiting as soon as I win the Lottery. Santa Fe is a long way from Sydney, Australia.

I think it's SO cool that you personally make such a concerted effort to keep Santa Fe a unique creative place in the US, unlike so many other towns slowly folding into another homogenized version of every other town, any where else in America. Thank you for that!!

Some what related...
...but did they ever paint the mural on the back wall of your movie theatre? I remember you posting about it but don't remember if you ever posted the result (sorry if I missed it).
