Our Mission

We say “yes” to artists, offering time and space to dream and realize projects in our hometown, Pittsburgh, PA. We invite audiences from around the world and around the corner to step inside, immerse and connect with the artistic process.

'ART &' Relaunches

Mattress Factory is pleased to announce the return of our stellar ART & series! Thank you to our donors, members, and staff for providing the resources needed to welcome back one of Mattress Factory's most beloved programs.

ART & is an opportunity for Mattress Factory artists and the public to connect and explore the themes and ideas behind the work. ART & is an invitation for everyone to get to know the artist and elements that inspired their art. It is a space where the artist can dive deep into a subject that is integral to their work and share that exploration with you.

Past Art &’s included:  
  • ART & Ballet: Karina Smigla-Bobinski 
  • ART & Kink: Nathan Hall  


ART & features intimate evening programming centered around an exhibiting artist -- the ‘ART’-- paired with a theme or element connected to the artist’s process -- the ‘&.’ 

The first two ART &’s in the relaunch of the series are in January and February. Tickets for each ART & are $10.  Members receive $5 off tickets.
