Ready to travel to another dimension? Read on to learn what to expect at Meow Wolf Denver, and why you should visit the original in the meantime.
What is Meow Wolf?
Meow Wolf is an immersive arts and music experience that has remained unparalleled since its first building opened in 2015.
It started out as a Santa Fe artist collective, displaying and supporting artists from all mediums including video production, sculpture, and music.
How Meow Wolf Got its Start
In 2015, Game of Thrones creator and Santa Fe local George R.R. Martin purchased an abandoned bowling alley for $750,000 to lease to the Meow Wolf Collective.
From here, The House of Eternal Return was born, giving Meow Wolf global acclaim.
The House of Eternal Return is Meow Wolf’s permanent interactive art installation that is built inside an actual Victorian home.
Exploring the Magic
Once you set foot in the house, you step into an alternate reality. In this reality, you’re solving a very odd mystery while exploring parallel worlds that seem to defy laws of space and time.
Each room and world is created or curated by an artist from the Meow Wolf collective.
In its first year alone, Meow Wolf and The House of Eternal Return attracted over 400,000 visitors from around the country.
The Meow Wolf Team was sure to share their success with other arts programs around the country by donating over half a million dollars in 2017 alone.
Now that word continues to spread they’re prepared to bring new experiences to the rest of the world, starting right here in Denver, Colorado.
Meow Wolf Denver: What to Expect
At 90,000 square feet, Meow Wolf Denver will be 3 times the size of the House of Eternal Return.
The new space will be nestled between the Pepsi Center and Mile High Stadium and hold the work of 150-300 Denver artists and craftsmen.
Every inch will be dedicated to an immersive new installation. In fact, design director Anthony Guida says the experience will even lead participants below the viaducts.
Details on the theme and participants of the Denver installation are still hush hush. Meow Co-Founder Vince Kadlubek only gives one hint, stating, “If Santa Fe’s House brought you into one family’s life, the Denver experience is going to take you into an entire world.”
A 200year lease has been signed and tickets are available now to help complete funding. For the full VIP experience, you can purchase tickets to the opening day gala for $1000, or guarantee your spot forever with a lifetime pass for $10,000.
The magic won’t stop in Colorado! More Meow Wolf locations are coming, including one in 2019 in Las Vegas and another to follow in Austin, Texas.
