About this Discussion:
If you haven't already visited Meow Wolf, it's definitely something to add to your bucket list. What started as a group of Sante Fe artists getting together to create a space where imaginations run wild, to now a large company moving into 4 new locations.
Meow Wolf has taken art and emerging technology to create an experience like no other, and everyone is paying attention. When it comes to innovation, there is no doubt that Meow Wolf is on the forefront, specifically with art and experience.
We were honored to sit down with Sarah Brin, Strategic Partnerships Manager at Meow Wolf who gave us some inside looks as how Meow Wolf has built such an incredible business, culture, and experience. We also talked about how they integrate technology into art, and what's next for this amazing company.
