Meow Wolf announces 110 Colorado artists contributing to Denver installation

Meow Wolf has announced the names of the 110 Colorado artists collaborating on Meow Wolf Denver, their highly-anticipated third permanent installation. More than 300 creatives are working to bring Meow Wolf Denver to life this fall.

“Meow Wolf Denver is our most ambitious project to date! With hundreds of creatives working on this massive endeavor, including overwhelming talent from local Denver-based artists, we can’t wait for guests to experience the magic confined within these uniquely shaped walls,” said Ali Rubinstein, CCO and Co-CEO of Meow Wolf. “Starting this fall, guests can explore four floors of exhibition space, with portals transporting them to worlds beyond their wildest imagination.”

Opening this Fall, Meow Wolf Denver will span four floors with hundreds of installations of interactive art and include food and beverage services, retail space, and a 488 person capacity venue. Meow Wolf is looking forward to welcoming locals and tourists alike to the unique installation which adds to the exciting repertoire of what Colorado has to offer.

The most narratively complex installation to date, Meow Wolf Denver worked with a variety of artists across multiple mediums to create an experience that will truly transport visitors to other worlds. These muralists, sculptors, fiber artists, and technologists came together to create a one-of-a-kind installation that will leave visitors appreciating what it means to “experience art”. The exhibition includes the work of 110 Colorado-based artists with diverse backgrounds including 51% identifying as female, 20% identifying as LGBTQ+ and 38% of the Artist collaborators are People of Color based on optional survey answers.

With its Denver installation, Meow Wolf celebrates both established and emerging artists, each with their own unique stories to tell. Visitors can look forward to the works of Kayln Heffernan and collaborator Gregg Ziemba with their work “Wheelchair Space Kitchen”; Cal Duran and David Ocelotl Garcia with their work “Earth Spirits of the Subconscious Mind”; Molina Speaks with their “Indigenous Futurist Dreamscape Lounge”; Mongolian collaborators Eriko Tsogo, Jennifer Tsogo, Tsogo Mijid, and Batochir Batkhishig on their work “Mongovoo Temple”; and the “Aquakota” nightclub, conceptualized by the late artist Colin Richard Ferguson Ward and completed by his collaborators Peniel Apantenco and Kim Shively in his memory.
