New Plans for an Old Building

We had a great press conference this morning at the old Silva Lanes, to announce plans for the long-shuttered bowling alley that I bought a few months ago.  Santa Fe Mayor Javier Gonzalez was on hand to help us launch the project, along with an army of artists, dreamers, and organizers from Meow Wolf, who initiated this sweet madness and will be speaheading the redevelopment.

Lots of reporters and photographers turned up, along with a couple of TV crews.  As their reports come in, I will post links here, for those who are interested.

Here's the ALBUQUERQUE JOURNAL:

Here's the Santa Fe NEW MEXICAN:

 Marshall Thompson and Constructive Assets will be handling the renovation and repair of the huge structure on Rufina Circle, which was gutted years ago and has sat abandoned and empty for years.  Just fixing the infrastructure will require months of work.  But once the building is safe and habitable, Meow Wolf's army of amazing young artists will be moving in, to create what we think will be a truly incredible and original piece of immersive art, something that will entertain and enlighten adults and kids both: the House of Eternal Return.

It won't be cheap.  To that end, Meow Wolf has started a Kickstarter.  For a first glimpse of their plans, go to:

Needless to say, contributions are welcome, if you would like to be a part of this.
