The Mattress Factory’s Teen Art Cooperative is hosting YAMM, the Young Artist Maker Market on Saturday, May 6th from 11:00 AM – 3:00 PM in the Mattress Factory Museum’s Lobby and Winifred Lutz Garden spaces. This event is free for all ages and will feature over 30 local teen makers who will be selling their artwork and handmade creations for a profit. The artists and makers will be selling a wide range of artwork, jewelry, crocheted items, pottery and much more.
Our 15 Teen Art Co-op members have worked hard over the past semester to plan this market and bring together the teen art community of Pittsburgh. The Cooperative developed the application process, marketing materials, plan and budget for the event together. They also conducted outreach at local schools, talking with many art teachers to disseminate information about this opportunity to regional teens. The teens and the staff at Mattress Factory are excited to provide entrepreneurial support to emerging young artists of the region.
