Mattress Factory Museum of Contemporary Art

The Mattress Factory is a museum of contemporary art
that exhibits room-sized works called installations. Created
on site by artists from across the country and around the
world, our unique exhibitions feature a variety of media that engage all of the senses.

The Museum’s unusual galleries are located in two creatively reused buildings on Pittsburgh’s historic North Side. Both buildings house a growing-and distinctive- permanent collection, featuring
artists James Turrell, Yayoi Kusama, Winifred Lutz and Rolf Julius, as well as innovative exhibitions that change throughout the year.

Since 1977, the Mattress Factory has supported more than 500 artists through our world-renowned residency program. Each year artists come to Pittsburgh, live at the museum, and create new work. During their time here, the museum supports them
completely while they experiment, take risks, and explore the
creative process.

Each exhibition is paired with a variety of engaging and
inventive educational programs including hands-on art projects,
workshops, lectures, and tours. The Mattress Factory
encourages all viewers, regardless of their background, to
discover connections between art, creativity and their
everyday lives.
