On a trip last weekend to Oklahoma, the IFP’s Amy Dotson attended the opening of the Womb Gallery, spearheaded by the Flaming Lips’ Wayne Coyne. Her short report follows.

When you think Oklahoma City, usually Bigfoot, giant balloon-filled walk-in vagina sculptures and samurai serving alcoholic snow-cones are not what come directly to mind. But thanks to Flaming Lips front-man Wayne Coyne and his collaborators, all that is about to change.

With its psychedelic exterior from Brooklyn artist Maya Hayuk and featuring campy, graffiti inspired art by Bigfoot One, The Womb Gallery launched this weekend.

Not even the 114 degree night could keep onlookers and art lovers away – myself included. The place was teeming to capacity, air conditioning be damned.

But, alas it was just too hot for BMX star Mat Hoffman to arrive via jet pack as promoted. Luckily, Wayne’s wife was there to keep the peace wearing a see-through skirt and black skivvies, keeping it cool for all of us. — Amy Dotson
