What is the Lavatory?

The Lavatory is a collection of six immersive art exhibits called “The Museum” and the cleanest ball pit on the planet, called “The Pit”.

The Museum

This is the patio entrance to the Museum with our own Lizzy. It’s on the east side of the building along 12th Street as opposed to the Pit entrance which is on the south side along Highland.


The Pit

Check out this video to see what it’s like when the volcano erupts.


Claymation Booths

They’re like photo booths. There are two of them. One for individuals, the other for couples. They are in the same room with the Pit so everyone has access to them. They have adjustable light and controlled backgrounds so its as if you are shooting in front of a cyc. You are welcome to use the props and wardrobe. The the tall guy (with Void in the third picture) took these and may offer to take your picture. There is no cost, but if he takes your picture you sacrifice art direction.

Who’s behind the Lavatory?

Lots of people have helped put this together, but there are four of us that run it every day. Left to right.


Bill Tonnesen @bill.tonnesen

We own the building and our company, @tonneseninc designed and built the Lavatory.

Lizzy Lubitsky @studiolubitsky

Lizzy is an artist from Philadelphia. She literally drove across the country to join us. She’s the one behind the curtain running the show every night. The only person I know that’s as charming as Lizzy is my daughter Cinta.

Void Noir @vforvoid

They are quiet and funny and kind and we would not want to do this without them. Want to know your future? They also man the Palmistry booth.

Marrioth Ling @marriothling

Who knew? Latina power big time. Marrioth comes from Venezuela. She’s been with us from the beginning. Like Lizzy, she started out doing one thing, now everything. Art, photo, fashion, media, business. Smart. Super smart but her English still stinks.
