Meow Wolf Set to Bring the Strange to Texas
When it comes to new and strange experiences, you'd be hard-pressed to find anything weirder than Meow Wolf. This inspirational and interactive art space is kind of hard to describe. Meow Wolf's mission statement probably says it best:
Our mission is to inspire creativity through art, exploration, and play so that imagination will transform the world
To achieve that inspiration, this one-of-a-kind experience assaults the senses with a journey through the surreal. The "Omega Mart" entrance to the location in Las Vegas is littered with strangely-labeled products that serve as a front for the weirdness that can only be accessed when you find the secret door in the "store's" drink cooler.
That gives you access to a tunnel that leads to neon-lit rooms, slides, strange interactive devices, and more. Currently, the Las Vegas location is one of only 3 in the world - but it looks like that is about to change.
According to the report from the SF Reporter, the company announced that it would be bringing its special brand of strange to the Lone Star State. 2 Meow Wolf locations will be built in Texas - one in Grapevine, and the other in Houston's famous Fifth Ward.
Reportedly, the Grapevine location will take over an existing 400,000 sq. ft. "big box" store that is currently sitting empty. That experience is set to be completed some time next year. The Houston Meow Wolf is slated for the burgeoning arts and and culture district in the city's historic Fifth Ward.
