A few years ago, Game of Thrones author G. R. R. Martin bought a bowling alley in Santa Fe, New Mexico. Formerly known as Silva Lanes, it had lain defunct for years, and had in fact been thoroughly gutted by the time of the purchase. But that was fine for Martin, who is not exactly an avid bowler.

Rather, the renowned author bought the building so that a young group of experimental Santa Fe artists known as Meow Wolf could transform it into “the House of Eternal Return,” an interactive art exhibit designed like a Victorian house lost in time and space.

In the years since, the House of Eternal Return has become more popular than either Martin or Meow Wolf could have dreamed.

Meow Wolf is now preparing to spread beyond Santa Fe and open exhibits in both Denver and Las Vegas by 2020, and is already experimenting with new augmented-reality art installations.

A new documentary, “Meow Wolf: Origin Story,” showcases the highs and lows of the group’s quest to articulate their unique artistic vision.
