Founded in 1977, this Pittsburgh contemporary art space also functions as a laboratory for international artists-in-residence to create immersive installations. The museum is an incubator for emerging installation and performance artists, which is exciting to witness, especially when paired with events like the annual Urban Garden Party, photo fairs, and community art classes. Like many of Pittsburgh’s museums, the Mattress Factory offers educational seminars for children, families, and adults that focus on the current collections and installations. There's a great museum shop, too, filled with books, t-shirts, coffee mugs, and more contemporary art memorabilia.
