Meow Wolf’s immersive and multimedia art experience is heading to the Lone Star state next year & beyond! In 2023, a brand new permanent Meow Wolf installation will be reclaiming the space of a former big box retail store at Grapevine Mills in the Dallas-Fort Worth metroplex. The exhibit will be joining other experiences such as LEGOLAND Discovery Center and SEA LIFE Aquarium inside the mall.
For Meow Wolf fans, you may be wondering… why a mall? In the words of Meow Wolf Founder and 80’s kid Vince Kadlubek:
“Malls have been such an incredible and weird part of the American story, especially for a lot of us that grew up in the 80’s and 90’s. It is an exciting thought that these spaces could be filled with incredible art and immersive experiences, opening a new era of opportunity for the creative economy. We felt like Meow Wolf could help lead the way.”
And in 2024, Meow Wolf will make their way to the Fifth Ward of Houston! The Fifth Ward is an historical district dating back to the late 1800s that has been transformed into an arts and cultural destination in recent years.
“Meow Wolf has always been about making art accessible to as many folks as possible, and in areas that may not have as many artistic offerings. [We] could’ve easily considered areas like Deep Ellum or The Arts District, but thought this was a great opportunity to impact a whole new audience with our work,” said Kadlubek.
