After a fun day in the museum, Chewey the llama greated us expecting a treat and petting.
In Santa Fe there is a great diversity of art, always something new in the next museum or gallery. The Meow Wolf Art Museum was outstanding.
This is an interactive art installation that provides immersive art experiences. They call themselves an art museum because the place has permanent art exhibits. The art company creates “immersive, multimedia experiences that transport audiences of all ages into fantastic realms.” When we saw the Immersive “Van Gogh” exhibit, some parts of that exhibition was a similar principle. The first permanent installation of Meow Wolf was in 2016. George R.R. Martin who lives in Santa Fe and wrote the Game of Thrones fantasy novel, supported the Meow Wolf museum. In one of the movie theaters in Santa Fe, you can buy an autographed copy of the Game of the Thrones.
The Meow Wolf immersive art experience is an 'escape house' with a large number of interesting spaces with artistic decoration, connected sometimes with mystery passageways, and filled with interactive mysteries to solve. It was funny to go through a refrigerator and find yourself in a big room, for example. As many as 500 artists worked on the decorations.
We spent three hours enjoying the different kinds of art forms. We could’ve spent more time easily, but we had to go to explore more beautiful places. My favorite thing was the art that included pictures and sounds from the past. There was a Star Wars themed room, for example. We didn’t have time to read all the letters and notes that were exhibited in the museum, so we did not solve the mystery of what happened to the family that lived in the house. There are so many things and activities that are enough for multiple visits.
The museum shop offered an outstanding collection of fashion, art, and collectibles.
