About Meow Wolf

Meow Wolf employs artists and creatives to work collaboratively to create immersive art exhibits and other innovations that provide positive experiences, economic development, and community betterment.

In 2016, we opened our first permanent art experience in Santa Fe New Mexico—the House of Eternal Return—which attracted more than 400,000 visits and $7 million in revenues in our first 12 months.

Over 2017, we expanded our company exponentially, providing salaries and benefits to over 200 employees. We increased our outreach within our communities: we donated to public schools and nonprofits, worked with students on collaborative art pieces, and provided discounts and extended learning opportunities to locals. We also retrofitted our exhibition with solar panels and other energy efficiency components.

Within a decade, Meow Wolf seeks to become a leading creative brand in the world: one of the largest worldwide employers of artists, and a multi-billion dollar company, providing themed entertainment and creative experiences on the level that people think of Disney, Universal, and Marvel.

We strive to be a visionary organization in the way we support the artists we employ, the audiences we serve, and the creative communities we foster across the country.

Community, environment and society are not grand goals, they are humble goals and our first goals. We are a Delaware public benefit corporation. We began life as an artists' collective. For people, we value living wages for our people, full time jobs for artists, and providing opportunities for the hard-to-employ. We give life to new properties in under-served neighborhoods; we engage with community groups to bring art and imagination where it isn't. We seek to construct and use materials that are good for the environment.

What makes us a better company?
