If you find yourself in New Mexico or anywhere nearby, take a trip into Meow Wolf

in art •  last year

Meow Wolf in Santa Fe, New Mexico, is hard to find words for. They describe it as an "immersive art installation" which covers it broadly. And maybe broadly is the only way it should be covered. Words don't do it justice. Pictures don't do it justice. I didn't take more than a couple pictures inside of it because I knew they would end up a pale reflection.

Meow Wolf is one hell of an installation. Upon entry you are suddenly in a rather strange, surprising environment. As you go deeper, it just gets stranger. There are a lot of surprises waiting for you. Let it take you and you will feel like an explorer of a creative pocket of reality unlike any other.

And it is immersive. Nothing within is half-assed. This is a bonafide, whole-assed multidimensional flow of artistry. To call it impressive is an understatement. It is awesome, in the traditional definition of the word. It's mind-boggling how it was even planned and built.

You've noticed by now that I've been vague on details. This is because Meow Wolf is probably best experienced without knowing what is inside the walls of its former-bowling-alley home. Seriously, just visit it if you're in the geographical neighborhood. Give yourself some time to visit it. At least a few hours or more. Or look at their event schedule and see a music show there. It's a good venue for that too, and you'll be able to explore (a little bit of) the place before the show!

If you think you might visit, be careful not to watch a video or look at photos. Spoilers! :)

Good footnote, George R. R. Martin is a big donor & helped take this place from low key DIY music venue to what it is now.

Hah thats awesome. I figured there had to be some major money involved. I like the guy a bit more now!

·

follow up! Meow Wolf is building a Denver CO (my hometown!) outpost. 3x bigger than the Santa Fe location.

Whoa, I'll hold out a sliver of hope they'll get to building one here too.

Sounds very interesting. Now I need to go check it out. We just moved to New Mexico 😊

·

No chance for me to see it, unless someone bought me a plane ticket.

A friend of mine works there and another friend is playing there tonight..seems the meow is calling.... :)

It is amazing how many interesting things I read about in this few days I m on Steemit, and would probably never hear about if I wasnt. Meowwolf is one of them. Thank you.
Best,

I was surprised to search Steemit for Meow Wolf and find nothing, so I had to make this post. Glad you've learned about it.

As vague of a description as it was, I'm convinced. Going to Meow Wolf.

hmm, I'm planning a motorcycle trip out west this summer. I can add this to my list of reasons to veer south during that trip. Thanks.

·

Awesome!

Might have to check it out when I am down that way in a few weeks. I see they have a food truck also, have you tried the food?

·

They had a taco truck out front when I visited, which made some pretty damn good al pastor :) They are called Taqueria Gracias Madre.

Looks like their own food truck is something new.

Dat name! lol
I'd go just for that name!

·

Haha it's an interesting label for an interesting* place.

*understatement

The first "Beerland" on Vice has a brief segment on this place; it looks so cool.

Very intriguing description. Since I hardly ever visit Mexico, I decided to see shots of this place... and it made me think that I should to try to get to Mexico to see it with my own eyes.

New Mexico. Big difference :D

·
·

Oops, you are right. But for me these places are equally far :D

I will, when I start travel the world :D

It's a pity it's not in my geographical area))

Well, you could always make your own!

I've been shifted to the lottery viewpoint. Flag removed, followed. Sure this post might not have that much value to me but the way steem it structured and your consistency = you getting a good payout every now and again.

I agree entirely with your statement.
