Join our Premier Member Group

Factory 500 and Patron level memberships are the Mattress Factory's premiere membership groups. The Mattress Factory explores Pittsburgh, unearths its wild, artsy secrets, and curates them for art-appreciators like you with our quarterly Factory 500 events. Factory 500 events connect you with fellow contemporary art enthusiasts as you gain entrée to artist and maker studios, tour private collections and unique homes, and explore behind-the-scenes at a multitude of intriguing sites that range from print shops to abandoned historic buildings. Each event closes with a reception where Factory 500 and Patron members mingle and recount the day's adventures over wine and refreshments. 


Factory 500 and Patron members receive special invitations to all Factory 500 events. Visit the "For Members" page for the details on past or upcoming Factory 500 events. See the Factory 500 Flickr page for more photos and the blog for event recaps!
