Last Year (Santa Fe)

My Lost Post also contained some reports on the other projects I'm involved with here in Santa Fe, New Mexico.

Biggest one is Meow Wolf's ongoing transformation of the Silva Lanes, a derelict bowling alley, into a fantastic interactive art exhibit called the House of Eternal Return. I bought the bowling alley last January, and construction has been ongoing ever since. Of course, we're behind schedule. Originally hoped to open in September. Then November. Then January.

Now it's March, but March is looking solid. And really, boys and girls, if you pass through New Mexico any time this century, you will really want to stop and visit the House of Eternal Return. It's like nothing you've ever seen before. Besides, we have a giant robot and a giant spider in the parking lot.

Rather than recap, let me just link to all my previous blog posts about Meow Wolf. That should catch everyone up well enough.








Besides Silva Lanes, my other ongoing project is Dragonstone Studios, the former Desert Academy prep school that we've been converting to artist studios and offices. Work is still ongoing there (and way behind schedule, like everything else I am connected with, it seems), and there's less to say since this is not intended for the public... but the building has been filling up nicely with artists, a real creative community seems to be developing, and I'm stoked.

There's also some cool stuff going on down in Candy Kitchen, New Mexico at the Wild Spirit Wolf Sanctuary. But more on that in the future, when the work is done.

And there's something else... but no, can't talk about that one yet...

I love Santa Fe, and it pleases me no end that I am able to given something back to the community that has nurtured me since 1979.

"Dragonstone Studios" sounds badass. It would be a cool name for a production company.

I've always wanted to go to Santa Fe, but your blog posts make me wish for that journey so much more!

Great, now I will obsess about that one thing you can't talk about yet.
What a start to the year!

But yes, Dragonstone Studios... am liking the sound of that.

Your year makes my year seem so bland and insignificant. Wow. You are all over the place. But as long as you're having fun, keep at it. You're very inspiring!

I can already hear people commenting about GRRM giving hints about WINDS' release date ;)

I've been working in Las Cruces for the last couple of months. After 100+ miles of hiking and 10X that on the motorcycle, I can honestly say that it's one of myfavorite areas in the country.

Happy New Year to you

Santa Fe loves you too G.R.R.M.
Can't wait to see what meow wolf has to offer and of course some new faces in our local art scene are always welcome.

With luck, Sandia Labs (or someone else) will come through with a job that will let me move back to Albuquerque (my home town) and let me enjoy some of your contributions to The City Different.

Ah, Santa Fe..
I grew up in New Mexico (Albuquerque), and the place really does become part of your soul, doesn't it? Even when you leave, it never leaves you. I'm headed to Santa Fe in February to celebrate my mom's 85th birthday. Can't wait to have some green chile, and check out Meow Wolf and a film at Cocteau. If you'd like to join us for celebratory margaritas, we'd love to have you (although, forewarning: we are a nutty, crazy bunch). Thank you for giving so much of yourself to my homeland. :)

I'm headed to Santa Fe next weekend from Seattle and I've never been; I'm sad to miss the HoER opening, but your little theater is definitely on my list. Maybe I'll like it down there so much that I'll (eternally) return once it's open for biz. Cheers.
