TULSA, Okla. — The second iteration of one of Ahha Tulsa's most popular installations is coming to the downtown arts district but not as initially intended.

"THE EXPERIENCE: IMAGINE" opens Friday at The Hardesty Arts Center.

This new take on the immersive exhibit is comprised of six unique zones. There are interactive sound and light animations and visitors can even get inside a space station module.

The artists were forced to face some challenges in design due to COVID-19. They had to find ways for people to enjoy the exhibit while limiting the exposure and spread of the virus.

“I have plexi-glassed in the items. You can still view every item, but you can’t get that tactile experience along with that so we changed the format of that, a lot,” said Emily Simonds, lead artist for "THE EXPERIENCE: IMAGINE."

Ahha has safety guidelines in place to protect against the spread of coronavirus.

Guests are required to wear masks and the number of visitors allowed in the exhibit will be limited.

Admission to the instillation is $12.75 for adults and $8.75 for kids ages three to 12.
