There are only a few days left to float away on a cotton candy cloud at the Sweet Tooth Hotel, but we have good news for those of you who haven’t gotten their sugar fix yet. The sold-out, pop up art installation is returning for a second round in Dallas this fall.

After concluding its (extended) first run on August 31, Sweet Tooth Hotel will reopen on November 2 with a new theme and accompanying artworks. The playful pop up will take you on a psychedelic journey through time and space with “1955,” a retrofuturism themed exhibition.

Get ready for mid-century design and Space Age dreams.

The hotel’s five interactive spaces will be transformed by veteran Sweet Tooth Hotel collaborators Built by Bender, Jeremy Biggers, Rob Wilson, Shamsy Roomiani and Jojo Chuang, as well as new artists Hatziel Flores and Drigo. You’ll be able to keep up with their artistic process through the museum’s new Instagram page, @buildsweettoothhotel.

“1955” will be on view through December 31, and will include an expanded gift shop. This will be the final installation at Sweet Tooth Hotel’s Victory Park space, as it has plans to move to a larger location in 2019.

“We originally intended to pop up for just a month and then extended our first run to allow more guests to view the work,” founder Jencey Keeton says in a statement. “Now, we’ve decided to keep these short runs for an ongoing series and challenge ourselves on each chapter to bring something new to our guests and allow artists to explore the furthest depths of their creativity.

“In 2018, we’ve realized many of the technology leaps that were just dreams in 1955 so we wanted to imagine even further. What does a rocket ship fueled by rainbows look like? You’ll find out soon.”

Tickets for the November exhibition are already on sale – and they’re going quick. A trip to the Sweet Tooth Hotel will cost you $20 per person, with children under 2 admitted free.
