Meow Wolf believes in the power of creativity to change the world. KHS&S artisans and craftsman helped fulfill this mission transforming the five-story, 90,000 square foot Downtown Denver Meow Wolf into an immersive experience. A collection of three main portals showcases interactive art from more than 110 Denver-based and Meow Wolf artists.  One of the most complex projects undertaken for such a compact area, Meow Wolf Denver challenged the KHS&S team. Work extended over eight months with multiple hurdles to overcome. Designed as a massive, psychedelic, 6-dimensional swamp, the rockwork’s fluid shapes transform into organic vines that look alive and moving through lighting and sound. The exhibit interconnects with passageways, caves and portals telling vibrant stories through non-traditional art.
