There’s been a lot of anticipation for our next permanent exhibit at Meow Wolf Las Vegas, but so much more has been happening lately in the Entertainment Capital of the World, and we wanted to catch you up on what we’ve been doing and how things are progressing in Vegas! Just remember, what happens in this post… is something you should tell everyone you know.
The Believer Festival
Black Mountain Institute at UNLV — home to The Believer magazine — put on a 3-day celebration of writing, music, and visual arts this past April, and Meow Wolf was lucky enough to contribute to the 2019 Believer Festival by creating an original series of interactive performances that were set against the background of this wonderful moment of creative discovery. The festival caught the attention of the NY Times which declared Vegas a literary hub because of the Believer.
What’s a SuperCube, you say? SuperCube is the multisensory entertainment hub that has traveled back from the future to delight the minds of today! Created by Meow Wolf fabricator Geoff Banhoz, SuperCube is simultaneously a lo-tech ride for kids and a hi-tech, multimedia experience for adults. From May 19-22, SuperCube went on a little journey to RECon 2019 in Las Vegas, where emerging retailers, tech pioneers, and hot dog champions got to witness the 6-sided, programmable wonder in all of its cubey glory.
We’re so excited to be AREA15’s anchor tenant with our upcoming Meow Wolf Las Vegas exhibit! For those of you who don’t already know, AREA15 is going to be the home for a totally different Vegas experience, including experimental entertainment and immersive retail. Check out the photos below for some concept art and a little sneak peek at what’s to come!
Construction for Meow Wolf Las Vegas at AREA15 is progressing nicely, and we have proof! We can’t wait to show everybody the final product of what we’ve been working on, but in the meantime you can take a little gander and dream along with us. Our Vegas location is set to open in early 2020, and you’ll just have to trust us when we say that it’s going to be totally worth the wait! Stay tuned, friends…
