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.


Want to see what’s inside?

Here you go..


Mega Drops are Fridays and Saturdays at 7 pm. Tickets for Mega Drops are $25. A Mega Drop means 100k plus balls dropping from above. It is an hour experience and does not include a visit to the Lavatory Museum. Museum+Pit tickets are $25 and available Thursday, Friday, Saturday and Sunday but do not include a Mega-Drop. The Lavatory Museum is a collection of six art installations and the Pit but with Mini-Drops instead of a Mega Drop. The Lavatory Museum is also an hour experience, about 20 minutes of which is in the Pit, and costs $25. You can also buy a Combination Ticket for $40 that includes both the Mega-Drop and the Museum but that is only available Friday and Saturday at 7:00 pm.


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 @tonneseninc

We own the building and our company, Tonnesen Inc designed and built the Lavatory.

Marrioth Ling @marriothling

Who knew? Latina power big time. Marrioth comes from Venezuela. She’s been with us from the beginning. She does everything. Art, photo, fashion, media, business. Smart. Super smart.

Void Noir @vforvoid

They are quiet and funny and kind and we would not want to do this without them. This ethereal star from the world of Instagram materializes at the door every night.

Lizzy Lubitsky @studiolubitsky

Lizzy is an artist from Philadelphia. She literally drove across the country to join us. Her smile and charm are with us every night but her body is serving an art residency not in Arizona. Now she comes back to draw your picture and take standing ovations.
