The Mattress Factory was founded in 1977 by artists to support artists as they work in residence to create and exhibit site-specific installations. Since then, the museum has supported and exhibited new work by more than 750 artists from the Pittsburgh region and around the world. The museum’s mission is to 1) provide artists with an integrated residency and exhibition program, 2) educate and provide access so that everyone can appreciate the multi-disciplinary creative process of today’s artists, and 3) energize its urban community through artistic and education programs.
