When Can You Visit Meow Wolf Denver?
The arts and entertainment collective in the Mile High City is nearly ready to open
Art enthusiasts in Denver have been eagerly awaiting the local opening of Meow Wolf, the Santa Fe-based arts and entertainment company.
Their upcoming permanent Denver exhibition will finally be opening this fall.
Meow Wolf has worked with hundreds of collaborating artists, including 110 Colorado-based artists, as part of this exhibition and the experience will consist of multiple large anchor spaces showcasing 79 projects, which depict dozens of converged worlds including portals and wormholes between them.
The stand-alone building, known for its “sleepy pizza” shape, will house 4 floors of interactive exhibits interconnected through vertical travel and secret passageways.
In addition to their out-of-this-world immersive experience, Meow Wolf Denver will feature unique food offerings, a retail space, and a 450+ person live performance venue created in partnership with interactive technology and projection masters.
To create the mind-blowing live performance venue experience within the exhibition, Meow Wolf will be collaborating with creative industry leaders, including Moment Factory, known for projection mapping and interactive technology.
“Moment Factory collaborated with Meow Wolf to create an interactive experience that transforms the venue into an immersive space of discovery where guests can explore and influence the art around them,” stated Alexandre Lupien, Creative Director at Moment Factory.
By day, this live performance venue is an accessible interactive experience that transforms the space into one of discovery where guests can explore and influence the media around them.
Guests will be able to interact with the imagery, having the projections change in real-time based on their movements.
Visitors in the space can also experience the mural created by Artist Nate Gutierrez and hear a score composed by Cole Bee Wilson.
At night, the space will transform into a venue accommodating over 450 guests for concerts and events, similar to the performance space at Meow Wolf’s House of Eternal Return.
In addition to the venue, guests can look forward to dining at Meow Wolf Cafe, a fast-casual cafe that has both grab and go and dine-in offerings.
Inspired by the variety of tastes found in Denver cuisine, Meow Wolf Cafe will partner with local food and beverage entrepreneurs who represent the inclusivity and convergence of cultures that Meow Wolf believes in.
Before returning to the real world, guests can continue their exploration in the exhibition’s gift shop. Spanning over 2,000 square feet and offering over 1,500 unique items, these carefully curated keepsakes will allow guests to take home a piece of their experience. Items range from T-shirts to one-of-a-kind pieces of art from local Denver artists and beyond.
“Our most ambitious project to date, the Denver exhibition is bound to bend minds, inspire creativity, and touch hearts when we open our doors this fall,” said Todd Richins, Executive Creative Producer at Meow Wolf. “From our partnership with artists and collaborators on the venue, to the retail and food spaces within our walls, Meow Wolf Denver is a one-stop immersive and imaginative art experience for the ages.”
