Dec 11, 2018 Joe Kleiman Attractions, Homepage Slider, News, North America, World markets Comments Off on Meow Wolf announces Washington D.C. as newest host city for interactive experiential art exhibit
Meow Wolf started off 2018 with back-to-back January announcements of huge, new, permanent installations in Denver and Las Vegas. Now, the booming arts start-up ends the year with news of a major permanent installation coming to the nation’s capital: Washington, D.C.
The project is the result of a partnership with the Cafritz Foundation and will be a three-level, 75,000-square-foot structure located in the Fort Totten community. The exhibition will feature a new immersive narrative with uniquely
interactive art experiences. Meow Wolf will reveal more details about plans for D.C. in 2019, with the grand opening taking place in 2022.
“Washington, D.C. is an international cultural powerhouse and an ideal setting for the evolving Meow Wolf story universe that began with House Of Eternal Return,” says CEO Vince Kadlubek. “Our intergalactic, transmedia story is rooted in a community of underdogs who overcome ‘The Powers That Be,’ and we will have something really special for all the fellow underdogs who seek a transformative experience when we unveil the D.C. chapter.” Meow Wolf credits the Cafritz Foundation for taking that chapter from possibility to reality.
“One of the chief reasons we committed to Washington, D.C. is the quality of our partnership with the Cafritz Foundation,” says Kadlubek. “We are very honored to work with this world-class developer and foundation in a project that will focus so strongly on positive community impact.”
The Morris and Gwendolyn Cafritz Foundation is the largest private, independent, local foundation dedicated exclusively to the Washington, D.C. metropolitan area. The Foundation is the legacy of Morris Cafritz–one of Washington’s leading commercial and residential builders from the early 1920s to the mid-60s–and is committed to improving the quality of life for residents of the area. Since 1970, the Cafritz Foundation has granted awards totaling more than $447 million. In just the last 10 years, $185 million has been awarded to more than 961 organizations supporting Community Services, Arts & Humanities, Education, Health and the Environment.
“We are excited to announce this new partnership with Meow Wolf,” said Jane Cafritz of the Morris and Gwendolyn Cafritz Foundation. “Meow Wolf has grown beyond the innovative DIY art collective to a nationally renowned, immersive art experience. This opportunity will be an important addition to Washington, DC and the Northeast DC. As a team that has been involved in the arts for decades, we are thrilled to see that the future of the art experience will be coming to the Nation’s capital.”
