Our Mission

The Mattress Factory is an artist-centered museum, international residency program and renowned producer and presenter of installation art. 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.

Teen Summer Workshop Series


Teens ages 15-18 are invited to join us for tours and art-making inspired by artists exhibiting at the Mattress Factory.

Each workshop is led by a different artist excited to share their creative vision with adventurous teens this summer!

The Program:

  • Build lasting relationships and opportunities with the museum and art
  • Career- building 
  • Expand and create opportunities that surpass what is available or discussed in a classroom-setting 
  • Cultivate a safe space / community 
  • Engage local teens that might not participate in Teen Co-op Program

The program is FREE and includes a membership to Mattress Factory Museum. Summer 2024 Session Dates TBD. Pre-registration is required and the program admits a maximum of 20 high-school teens.

For more information, email fbaker@mattress.org.
