MThe long-awaited interactive art and entertainment venue Meow Wolf Denver is set to open this fall, the company announced Wednesday.
It will be the Santa Fe-based arts and entertainment company’s third permanent exhibition. Its Las Vegas Omega Mart opened in February, and has sold out every day, according to the company.
Located between the elevated intersection of West Colfax Avenue and I-25, the triangle-shaped building will house an exhibit three-to-four times larger than the 25,000-square foot Santa Fe exhibit House of Eternal Return.
“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, in a statement. “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.”
The four-story exhibit space in the “sleepy pizza” shaped building will showcase the work of 110 Colorado-based artists who helped create 79 “anchor space” projects. Plans also call for a 450-person live performance venue, a 2,000-square-foot gift shop and the Meow Wolf Café.
The exhibits “depict dozens of converged worlds including portals and wormholes between them,” according to a release. Meow Wolf teamed with multimedia studio Moment Factory on the project.
Meow Wolf Denver was announced in 2019, but the pandemic slowed the project.
