Green-eyed coyote joins tarantula and robot

It’s not a wolf and it doesn’t meow, but that doesn’t mean the Green Coyote doesn’t belong at the soon-to-open Meow Wolf Arts Complex.

The sculpture by Don Kennell, which once could be seen in Santa Fe’s Railyard Park, takes the middle position between a giant tarantula and a daisy-sniffing robot. Or at least it will be turned on to start sniffing its daisy with this weekend’s opening of the complex and its House of Eternal Return.

Anticipation is building. The construction fence was taken down several days ago and the parking lot has been filled with cars every day, no doubt belonging to artists/workers putting the finishing touches on the project — one that, like its parking lot metallic sculptures, no doubt will be bigger than life.
