About the Company

Meow Wolf is an art collective and production company creating and operating immersive, interactive multimedia experiences that transport audiences of all ages to fantastical realms of storytelling.

Since then Meow Wolf has created 25 exhibitions throughout the United States working with hundreds of artists.
