TULSA — An American rock band formed in Oklahoma City in 1983 is bringing an original, interactive sculpture to ahha Tulsa.

Ahha Tulsa has partnered with The Flaming Lips to exhibit "King's Mouth".

"King's Mouth" will be displayed starting on Black Friday, Nov. 29, until May 2020.

Officials say, with regular admission, music and art fans can visit the original piece during ahha Tulsa regular business hours: Wed. - Sat. from 12 p.m. to 9 p.m. and Sun. from 12 p.m. to 7 p.m.

" "King’s Mouth’s" immersive, hypnotic story is a fun adventure for the whole family. Its LED light strands and surround sound music make it a unique and enlightening experience. The story of King’s Mouth is exhibited in a series of fourteen original works of art by frontman Wayne Coyne and is accompanied with creative toys, t-shirts and an album of music and songs written and performed by The Flaming Lips," according to a press release.

“Tulsans responded to our first big foray into this kind of art with so much enthusiasm, we couldn’t wait to do more,” said Executive Director Holly Becker. “We see a hunger for art like this among Tulsans, and King’s Mouth is an exciting addition to ahha as we close THE EXPERIENCE for re-installation at the end of December.”

Officials say THE EXPERIENCE will close Dec. 29, however, ahha Tulsa visitors will be able to see a new immersive art floor in May 2020, but "King’s Mouth" will be open during the transition.

Admission is $12.75 for adults and $8.75 for ages 3-12. Kids under 3 and ahha members are free.
