NEW YORK, Oct. 28 (UPI) -- A massive new Rolling Stones exhibit is coming to New York City in November.

"Exhibitionism - The Rolling Stones," featuring original and rare objects from the band's archives and private collections, will debut Nov. 12 at Industria studio in the West Village, according to a press release.

The 17,000 sq. ft. exhibit will feature more than 500 instruments, personal diaries, unheard audio tracks, interactive mixing desks and original artworks, including pieces by Andy Warhol, John Pashe and Walton Forde. The studio will also display 70 original costumes by designers such as Alexander McQueen, Prada and Dior.

Three giant art installations of the iconic Rolling Stones tongue were unveiled Thursday to celebrate the opening of the box office. The sculptures, which are almost 8 feet tall, close to 7 feet wide and weigh 1,650 pounds each, will "pop up around the city" for the duration of the exhibit.

"#StoneIsm Exhibitionism opens in NYC on Nov 12! Check out this map of Stones spots across the city," the band wrote on their official Twitter.

"Exhibitionism - The Rolling Stones" will run through March 12. The Rolling Stones formed in London in 1962. The group now consists of Mick Jagger, Keith Richards, Charlie Watts and Ronnie Wood.
