In March,​ Meow Wolf celebrated one year since opening “House of Eternal Return”​ in Santa Fe. ​The immersive arts experience ​post​ed​ impressive first year numbers​ of 400,000 visits. This ​surpass​es the first year goal of 150,000 tickets​, adding​ million​s of dollars​ to the local Santa Fe economy.

​The company register​ed​ as ​New Mexico’s ​newest ​B Corporation​ and is seeking certification for its triple bottom line efforts. These include providing living wages ​for young professionals and artists in Santa Fe​, donations to local causes, green building, plus other social, community, and environmentally motivated good business. Gift ​shop ​sales support ​6​0 local artists, the music venue hosts regular shows​ of local and national acts​, and ​the company continues to hire full time ​opportunities​.
