ARTLab: Penny Arcade
Saturday, August 16, 2014
FREE with Museum Admission
Museum Lobby @ 500 Sampsonia Way

Members of Penny Arcade, a children's improvised comedy show at Arcade Comedy Theater, will be playing in the galleries, leading improv games, and inviting guests to participate in some spontaneous art! The very first Pittsburgh Comedy Festival is August 21-23, and Penny Arcade will be playing at the Kid's Comedy Cabaret on August 23 from 1-2:30pm!

Twice a month, on the first and third Saturdays, visitors are invited to participate in a range of art-making activities that illuminate the creative process of in-residence artists. Projects and materials are developed to complement current and ongoing exhibitions. This program is free with museum admission and highly recommended for individuals or families with children of all ages.

Mattress Factory Education and Community progams are made possible by the generous support from the Allegheny Regional Assets District, Milton & Sally Avery Arts Foundation, Jack Buncher Foundation, Sheila Fortune Foundation, Grable Foundation, Pennsylvania Council on the Arts and Surdna Foundation.
