Clown Lips Doorway

The doll museum behind the clown lips doorway is no longer accepting appointments and its fate is currently unknown as owner JoJo Baby battles terminal cancer. However, the doorway displays have expended to include a glowing steampunk door on one side and a door of various skulls on the other.

Clown Lips Door.

Oversized Clown Lips Door

A massive pair of glittery red lips adorn the door to the Chicago Doll Museum and Gallery run by drag queen and local legend JoJo Baby. Visits to the museum are by appointment only; but feel free to snap a photo in the mouth! This unique block of a Chicago Avenue is home to Tommy's Guitars and Oddities as well as the glowing sign for the art collective, The Rot Shop, on either side of the lips.
