Meow Wolf is a mind-blowing multiverse.

The Santa Fe-based arts collective is spreading the love to New Mexico educators with a giveaway for free tickets during Teachers Appreciation week, which kicked off Monday, May 3.

According to Meow Wolf, the giveaway for New Mexico teachers will be run through its Santa Fe Facebook page.

To enter the contest, teachers and fans of teachers need to comment on the respective Facebook posts to nominate their favorite public school teacher in New Mexico.

Twenty-five public school teachers will then be selected to receive a four-pack of tickets to “House of Eternal Return” in Santa Fe. The giveaway will be open to all PreK-12 public school teachers, administrators, and faculty in New Mexico.

Winners will be selected on Friday, May 7, at random from the Facebook contest, and will need to provide a New Mexico school ID Badge to receive their tickets.

“At Meow Wolf, we believe in the value of public education, and give tremendous thanks to the teachers, educators and administrators who dedicate their lives to serving our next generation,” said Danika Padilla, Meow Wolf’s Senior Director of Social Impact, in a press release. “We’re a Certified B Corporation and are committed to supporting New Mexicans and our local community. Our teachers have continued their tireless efforts to support students and parents during COVID-19, and Meow Wolf is glad to recognize their efforts this Teacher Appreciation Week.”

Meow Wolf has spent the past year installing a variety of upgrades to the exhibit with new installations from guest artists such as Corinne Loperfido, Paolo Puck, and Obsidiopolis. The installation has also revised its traffic flow and curtailed its interaction with immersive displays so that the interactive experience aligns with museum protocol. Implementing safety practices and protocols to protect employees, guests, and the community is Meow Wolf’s main priority. Procedures currently include face masks, temperature checks, social distancing, ventilation upgrades, and employee COVID-19 testing.

Meow Wolf is also implementing safety measures for their staff and the exhibit. Every day, in preparation for guests, the “House of Eternal Return” undergoes rigorous sanitization.
