Founded in 2008 as an art collective for DIY artists in Santa Fe, Meow Wolf creates immersive, multimedia experiences that transport audiences of all ages into fantastic realms of storytelling. Housed in a converted bowling alley, Meow Wolf welcomes members of the general public into their fantastical world of art installations, video and music production, and extended reality content. Meow Wolf’s House of Eternal Return is a unique art experience featuring an astonishing new form of non-linear storytelling that unfolds through exploration, discovery, and 21st century interactivity to inspire visitors of all ages. The wildly imaginative art space is a collaboration of over 100 local artists and is a unique combination of children’s museum, art gallery, jungle gym, and fantasy novel. The group’s 2018 independent documentary, Meow Wolf: Origin Story, takes viewers through the meteoric rise of a penniless, anarchic art collective as it attracts the support of author George R.R. Martin (Game of Thrones), morphing into a multi-million dollar corporation in just a few short years.
This speaker series event presents two members of the Meow Wolf Collective: Morgan Capps, also co-director of Meow Wolf: Origin Story; and Chris Cloud.
Presented in partnership with the Ann Arbor Film Festival.
