Our Story

Who we are

Meow Wolf is a Santa Fe, New Mexico based arts and entertainment group that established in 2008 as an art collective.

The company is composed of nearly 200 artists across all disciplines including architecture, sculpture, painting, photography and video production, virtual and augmented reality, software and hardware development, music and audio engineering, narrative writing, costuming and performance, and more. Basically everything.

What we do

Meow Wolf creates immersive, interactive experiences to transport audiences of all ages into fantastic realms of story and exploration. The group’s first permanent installation, launched in March 2016 with support from Game Of Thrones creator George R.R. Martin, showcases the THEA Award-winning House of Eternal Return, where guests discover a multidimensional mystery house with secret passages, portals to magical worlds, climbing apparatus, and surreal, maximalist & mesmerizing art exhibits along with a children’s learning center, top ten in the U.S. music venue and cafe area.

Impact

Meow Wolf champions otherness, weirdness, challenging norms, radical inclusion, and the power of creativity to change the world.

We are different type of company. We are legally registered as a public benefit corporation and certified as a Benefit Corporation or B Corp. We value more than just making money; to us that means bolstering our creative team, giving back to our community, and doing our part for the environment.

Our 2017 Impact report details our economic, community, and environmental efforts for betterment. A few highlights include: providing living wages and benefits to over 300 employees; donating $250,000 to Do It Yourself (DIY) groups across the country and providing $500,000 in cash, marketing, and/or other in-kind value to local charitable organizations; and powering over 40 percent of our exhibition’s energy costs through solar.

Community

We firmly believe that accomplished artists must be compensated on an equal level with other skilled, in-demand professionals, and that successful businesses must give back to and participate energetically in their communities. We provide thousands of dollars of financial assistance every year, as well as expertise and other forms of active support.

We are particularly excited to support innovative, community focused artistic and social projects. Meow Wolf comes out of a dumpster-diving, DIY warehouse past, and we want to help emerging artists and arts communities around the world.
