ALBUQUERQUE, N.M.- Meow Wolf is opening a new art installation in Las Vegas in February.

Omega Mart is double the size of House of Eternal Return in Santa Fe.

The project is three years in the making. 

"Once you enter Omega Mart and you start taking a closer look, you’re going to find portals just like in the House of Eternal Return," said Didi Bethurum, vice president of marketing for Meow Wolf.

Omega Mart has four themed areas and features some New Mexico artists.

The installation will open at 25% capacity due to COVID-safe protocols.

House of Eternal Returns is still closed, but Bethurum said there will be surprises for New Mexicans when it reopens.

"We’ll have a lot more, we call them, creative operators in there. Performers, that are inside the space that will be cleaning multiple times per hour, particularly with those high contact areas and then of course we will have other types of sanitization going on with a new HVAC system," she said.

Meow Wolf plans on opening another location in Denver, Colorado later this year.
