Meow Wolf is laying off 165 employees, including employees at Convergence Station in Denver

Meow Wolf, the arts and entertainment company that opened an outpost in Denver in 2021, will lay off 165 employees companywide even as it moves forward with plans to open a new location in Texas, according to an internal memo.

In a memo to employees sent Monday, Meow Wolf CEO Jose Tolosa said the cuts will include 111 employees in the company’s exhibitions and corporate teams, as well as 54 positions in bargaining units at Omega Mart in Las Vegas.

Meow Wolf officials did not immediately respond to questions about the number of Denver employees affected, but said in the statement that the measures would reduce costs by 10%.

The Santa Fe-based company has grown rapidly in recent years by expanding its surreal, interactive sculptures and installations to multiple locations in Las Vegas, Denver and other planned markets.

Meow Wolf officials are actively negotiating with the employees’ union because there is no collective bargaining agreement, Tolosa wrote in the memo.
