Join us for an exclusive preview of the Museum’s newest installations with the four exhibiting artists and the show’s curator! Be the first to see the March Monterey Annex show before it opens to the public — and experience solo exhibitions by artists Katie Bullock, Lydia Rosenberg, and artistic collaborators Lenka Clayton and Phillip Andrew Lewis. All artists were selected by guest curator Denise Markonish, Senior Curator and Director of Exhibitions at MASS MoCA, through our inaugural Regional Open Call program.

Drinks and light bites will be provided.

Parking: Main Building parking lot (505 Jacksonia St, Pittsburgh, PA, 15212)

About the Regional Open Call: Artists based within a 75-mile radius of Pittsburgh (which includes parts of Ohio, Pennsylvania and West Virginia) are invited to apply to the Regional Open Call. A guest curator is chosen by the Mattress Factory to create a shortlist of these applicants for studio visits, after which they select one to two artists to exhibit at the Museum, alongside another artist of the curator’s choosing from anywhere outside of the Pittsburgh region.  Each year, this unique Open Call provides local artists with an opportunity to exhibit at the Mattress Factory and network with artists and curators across the country. In addition, the group of artists invited to the site visits benefit from in-person feedback from a nationally esteemed arts professional.
