Last May, we told you a retail space at Grapevine Mills mall in Grapevine would be transformed into a permanent immersive art installation by Meow Wolf, the Santa Fe-based arts and entertainment company. Now Meow Wolf has set a rough date for its grand opening.
The company says its Grapevine Meow Wolf exhibition will open this summer and will feature more than 30 North Texas-based collaborating artists including Dan Lam, Carlos Don Juan, and Tsz Kam. Within the 29,000 square feet of exhibition space, Meow Wolf Grapevine will have 30 rooms allocated for artists to realize a unique vision within the broader experience.
“The countdown is on to our opening this summer!” Kelly Schwartz, general manager of Meow Wolf Grapevine, said in a statement. “We are hiring like mad and the construction barriers that have been put up at Grapevine Mills can barely hold the collective imagination within. I can’t wait for you to see what we are creating for you.”
Meow Wolf is an arts and entertainment company that creates immersive and interactive experiences that transport audiences of all ages into fantastic realms of story and exploration.
Innovative entertainment experience
Meow Wolf said the exhibition will transform a former retail anchor space in Grapevine Mills, a shopping destination known for incorporating entertainment experiences into its retail spaces.
Along with the transformative experience Meow Wolf is known for, the Grapevine location will include unique food offerings featuring local vendors, a retail space, and a live performance venue that will host local and up-and-coming music acts as well as events for youth and community members, the company said.
Meow Wolf expects to hire more than 150 employees for its Grapevine location, with 14 of these positions currently open, including Director of Marketing and Sales and Exhibition Art & Scenic Engineer Lead.
The opening this summer in Grapevine follows the success of Meow Wolf’s second and third permanent installations in Las Vegas (Omega Mart), and Denver (Convergence Station), both of which opened in 2021. Meow Wolf said it plans to open another installation in Houston in 2024.
Meow Wolf has been recognized in Fast Company’s list of the “World’s Most Innovative Companies” in both 2020 and 2022, garnering recognition in the Live Events category.
