DISCOVERY LAB TULSA Tape Tunnel Call to Artists.

The tape tunnels, a feature exhibit at Discovery Lab, consist of sky-high tunnels made entirely of packing tape. Kids of all ages love navigating the tunnels, and are inspired by them to create their own extraordinary things out of ordinary materials, but Discovery Lab wants to push this already unique experience even further through the addition of original works of art.

Artists working in a variety of media are welcome to submit original concepts for consideration, including musicians and artists working in digital media.

Please carefully review the Artist Application Packet  before creating and submitting a proposal. 

Application deadline: Extended through May 11th  2019

Packet Updated 3.28.19


Ahha Tulsa invites local and regional artists to sell original artwork in the ahha Gift Shop on a consignment basis.

Consignment Structure

Each selected artist must sign a consignment agreement with a term of at least 90 days. Inventory must be delivered at the artist’s expense to the ahha Hardesty Center within 5 business days of an executed consignment contract. Artists receive 60% of each sale and the ahha receives 40% of each sale. Members of ahha Tulsa receive a 10% discount on all gift shop sales.

Sales Process

Ahha Tulsa handles all sales and processing. Once per month, consignment checks are mailed to artists who sold merchandise the prior month.


Gift Shop consignment sales are open to all artists, but preference is given to artists living in the state of Oklahoma. All items must be handmade, original works of art or craft. The following items are currently accepted as approved by the committee: paintings, drawings, original prints, photography, clothing, textiles, pottery, ceramics, wood carving, sculpture, jewelry, toys and games, children’s items, paper works (art cards, notecards, calendars, hand-bound books, glasswork, metalwork, traditional art). The minimum price for artist pieces is $24.95 per piece. Please keep this in mind and package smaller items, such as notecards, in sets to achieve this minimum.

Review Process

Merchandise proposals are reviewed on a rolling basis and at least four times per year through a highly competitive process. A committee of ahha Tulsa staff and board members review submissions and select artists.
