Travel To Another World At Meow Wolf Denver
Next time you’re in Denver you do not want to pass up a chance to visit Meow Wolf Denver. Suddenly, you won’t be in Denver anymore! Instead, you’ll be transported to the Convergence Station to explore four new worlds foreign to our human eyes beyond our imagination.
At this third, permanent exhibit in the Meow Wolf collection, visitors will experience a multitude of artistic expressions through fantasy landscapes in the 90,000 square foot building. They also can follow along with an intricate storyline created specifically for this experience. They also have exhibitions in Sante Fe, NM, and Las Vegas. Buckle up as we take you inside the new Meow Wolf Denver exhibition.
1. The Storyline
Meow Wolf began in 2008 with a group of DIY artists who believed that imagination can transform the world. They have three exhibitions in the United States that create immersive and interactive experiences that teleport guests to different worlds during the visit.
The new Meow Wolf Denver transports visitors to the Convergence Station that features 80 different unique rooms, portals, and installments telling the story of a cosmic event that merged four worlds together. The remaining residents have no memory of what occurred or their former lives and the Quantum Department of Transportation allows visitors to walk among them. For guests looking for a bit more adventure, they can unravel a narrative about the mysterious disappearance of four women and the events surrounding the cosmic shift.
2. What you’ll see
The art installments in Meow Wolf Denver cover 60,000-square-feet to tell the imaginative story of the Convergence Station. Each room was specially designed and curated by artists from across the country, with a large percentage of them being from Colorado. Figures and objects protrude from colorful walls rising high into the air and many sculptures can be found inside Meow Wolf Denver.
One room called the Mongovoo Temple features hundreds of masks designed by Eriko Tsogo, Jennifer Tsogo, Tsogo Mijid, and Batochir Batkhisig. It also featured a piece by artist Scott Hilderbrandt called You Are Here that wraps visitors in a room filled with dioramas and recycled communication equipment. Together, each room tells a creative story of life in another realm and invites guests to tag along on this exciting journey.
3. The Artists
Filled with bright, brilliant hues that seem to almost levitate off of the walls into reality, Meow Wolf is a contemporary art haven with a collection of designs and pieces from over 300 creatives, with 110 of them being based in Colorado. The exhibit received over 1000 submissions from artists when designing the new attraction. In the end, they collaborated with artists, musicians, performers, designers, writers, and sculptors from around the US.
The artists featured at Meow Wolf Denver come from a diverse array of backgrounds. There were an even number of men and women selected and 38 percent of the artists are people of color. Twenty percent identify as LGBTQ.
There are immersive hallways and rooms to get lost in for hours as well as some art behind glass for viewing pleasures only. The more you move through the exhibits the more the story of the Convergence Station comes together. Guests will find castles in large open rooms connected to a lush alien rain forest and an ice world just around the corner from creepy catacombs. A place full of surprises, you’ll never know what to expect at Meow Wolf Denver.
