Kelly Schwartz, a spokesperson for the company, said the meetings will be held Oct. 18 in Fort Worth and Oct. 19 in Grapevine.
The purpose of the meetings is for the company to introduce itself to the public and to receive feedback, she said.
“The goal is two-fold: We want to invite all members of the community to come, and we are going to share what Meow Wolf is and why we are coming to Grapevine Mills mall,” Schwartz said. “We are also asking the community to bring us ideas of artists and partnerships that matter with nonprofits. We are looking for two-way conversation and sharing a conversation to get feedback on how we can serve the community.”
The meeting in Fort Worth will be held from 6-7:30 p.m. at Arts Fort Worth in the BNSF Gallery, 1300 Gendy St. The Grapevine meeting will be from 7-8 p.m. at the Gary and Cynthia Blankenship Business Center, 200 E. Vine St.
The Grapevine location will be Meow Wolf's fourth in the U.S. and the first in Texas.
“It unlocks the imagination of every age,” Schwartz said. “It is an immersive art experience and it unlocks the imagination. All of the words you can think of can’t describe it. It is unlike anything the Dallas-Fort Worth [metroplex] has seen. People either know nothing about it or have heard about it and can’t wait to come.”
Meow Wolf will take over the former location of Bed, Bath & Beyond inside the mall, filling a 40,340-square-foot space, according to the Texas Department of Licensing and Regulation.
