As Meow Wolf now announced it will open two more locations in the US state of Texas in the next two years. The first will be a permanent exhibit scheduled to open in 2023 inside Grapevine Mills Mall, which is already home to visitor experiences such as a LEGOLAND® Discovery Center and a Sea Life aquarium.
“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 or 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,“ commented Vince Kadlubek, founder of Meow Wolf. “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 […],“ he added.
In 2024 in the Fifth Ward, an arts and culture area in Houston, Meow Wolf plans to open its fith location overall and the second one in Texas. (eap)
