If you’re into weird attractions, the name Meow Wolf may have come up in your internet searches. The original Meow Wolf is located in Santa Fe, but a second installation was created in Las Vegas. So what is Meow Wolf Omega Mart? Why should you consider going? Lets talk about it!
What is Meow Wolf?
Originally, Meow Wolf started as an artist collective in Santa Fe, New Mexico. The name was created by drawing two random words out of a hat at the very first meeting of the collective.
From 2008 until 2016 when the first permanent art installation was created, the artists participated in different art ventures. The very first art piece was The Due Return. This was a 70ft, 2 story tall ship. The life sized piece of art was funded on Kickstarter and was realized in 2011.
In 2016 the first permanent location in Santa Fe was set up. From there, Meow Wolf would become a household name for lovers of the trippy and weird.
About Meow Wolf Omega Mart
Omega Mart is the second permanent installment of Meow Wolf, located in Las Vegas. The exhibit is over 52,000 square feet (4,830 square meter) of weirdness and immersive art.
You enter the Omega Mart and rapidly you’re going to realize you’re not in Vegas anymore. As you wander up and down the store isles, glancing over products such as Doomed Expedition gum or CornPM painkillers in the drug isle.
As you interact with the art, a collaboration of more than 325 writers, sculptors, painters, actors, musicians and other artists, you just might find one of the portals that lead into different worlds and unexpected landscapes.
