We love saying yes to artists.
The Mattress Factory is a place like no other--our mission is to support living artists from all around the world as they create room-sized installation art in our three gallery buildings on the North Side of Pittsburgh. Artists come here to experiment, take risks and create art that is only possible at the Mattress Factory.
In 2013 the museum supported new work by 19 regional, national and international artists. Your support makes all the difference!
- Artist Chiharu Shiota used 500,000 feet of yarn to create Trace of Memory. That's nearly 95 miles of yarn.
- Pickles and pretzels for snack for our after school program Afternoons @ the Factory cost $50 per week.
- Over $13,000 worth of concrete was used to complete the renovation of our newest gallery on 516 Sampsonia Way.
- Our hot chocolate bar on Family Day runs up a tab of $75.
Every donation, big or small, helps us say yes to artists. With your support the Mattress Factory will continue to give artists the space, resources, freedom and permission to create.
So donate today, because even a little helps us say yes to a lot.
