In this week’s episode, Bob and Shelly travel to another dimension where STEM is STEAM and listeners receive a behind the scenes tour of Meow Wolf. Part art exhibit, part interactive museum, Meow Wolf has taken hold and is launching into the stratosphere, started by a group of 10 artists and the generous support of George R.R. Martin whose series of epic fantasy novels were adapted into the HBO series Game of Thrones. Soon the world will know about Meow Wolf with locations opening in Nevada, Colorado, Washington, D.C., and Phoenix.
As you pull up to this famed location in the heart of “The City Different,” you are greeted by a towering red robot who keeps an eye on the parking lot and cars from every state in the nation as people pour in to experience the hottest new trend where Art meets STEM to create STEAM! Hear from guest, Danika Padilla, as she shares the intrigue and the development – the growth and the struggle – of this amazing work of art that was started by a group of artists who wanted to disrupt the gallery arts industry. Danika joined Meow Wolf in 2018 and is Senior Director of Social Impact where she heads Meow Wolf’s social impact and corporate responsibility initiatives.
