Revamped Meow Wolf reopens with portals to other dimensions
February 08, 2017 05:22 PM
It took about two weeks of intense work for Zevin Polzin and dozens of others artists to take Meow Wolf into a new dimension.
The day before their reopening last week is still a blur.
"I was here for 21 hours and before that, I was probably 12-hour days for two weeks," Polzin said.
It's been worth it, Polzin said, and now the fictional world of Meow Wolf is even richer with new exhibits.
"There's a lot of new things to discover," he said. "There's new rooms and new details to existing rooms."
A new portal has ripped its way into the mysterious House of Eternal Return. Beyond creating a giant new portal, the artists at Meow Wolf are using every square inch of the exhibit to create hidden treasures.
"We've got a whole team of people who basically fabricate all this stuff from scratch and custom wire and set up everything," Polzin said.
More than 1,000 square feet of new attractions promise to surprise even the most seasoned customers. Even more rewarding for Polzin, he said, is the freedom the talented artists are given to create new worlds.
"We are sort of a living breathing example of what happens when you get people together that are willing to work and do whatever it takes to make something come into existence," Polzin said.
Meow Wolf is becoming so popular worldwide that new exhibits in other states are planned in the coming years.
