We are so much more than a gallery! We’re a Tulsa-based 501c3 nonprofit that owns and operates the Hardesty Center, which includes a contemporary art gallery, classrooms, studios, immersive floor, and hands-on maker space. We’re also glad you asked. Check out our history, mission, and vision over at the About page.
Visit lengths vary! A typical patron will spend roughly 1 to 2 hours if they visit THE GALLERY, THE EXPERIENCE, and THE STUDIO. Some intrepid creatives of all ages will spend multiple hours in THE STUDIO perfecting their projects. We invite you to stay as long as you like during public hours. Please note: THE EXPERIENCE is closed from January to mid May 2020 as we install the next cycle of this exciting immersive floor.
THE EXPERIENCE closed on December 29, 2019 and the second floor will be closed while we install the next version, THE EXPERIENCE: IMAGINE, which opens May 2020 with a new group of Lead Artists. If you are visiting after THE EXPERIENCE has closed, we have an immersive sculpture in the lobby called The King’s Mouth that will be open through May 2020.
There are many opportunities for creative play with young children and toddlers. Families have enjoyed playing and creating with manipulative toys in THE STUDIO and experimenting with drawing, painting, and torn paper collage.
While THE EXPERIENCE is fun for many kids including young children, a few have found the unusual lights and sounds a bit scary. Most kids love it! Please note: THE EXPERIENCE is closed from January-mid May 2020 as we install the next phase.
Admission for kids under 3 is free.
At ahha, if you find yourself upset by a piece of art, we encourage you to keep an open mind about the artist’s intention. The artist might be using images that grab your attention in order to make a larger point or start a conversation. Ahha is a safe space to have these discussions. If you would like to discuss a particular piece of art with staff, please contact firstname.lastname@example.org.
