Unveiling New Membership Levels at Mattress Factory


Starting April 1, 2024, Mattress Factory is ushering in a new chapter for our membership program! The revitalized experience introduces eight distinct levels, each offering exciting member programs to enhance your connection with art and creativity. Get ready for more ways to connect, engage, learn, and be inspired!

Note: Your current membership will remain unchanged until it expires. Starting April 1, all memberships can be renewed at our exciting new levels.

Thank you for being a dedicated member and supporter of the museum! Explore the new levels, benefits, and prices below. For any questions, feel free to contact Rachel at members@mattress.org or 412-313-5410.





Coffee Dates – Dual members and above:

Coffee Date is a program that allows members to meet with artists in residence, tour their work, and ask them questions directly! They are typically held on Saturday mornings with free coffee and pastries. These events are an excellent way to learn more about your favorite works, get context directly from the artists, and causally socialize with fellow members.


After Hours – Insider members and above:  

After Hours is a new program that invites members to experience the museum in the evenings and attend various exhibition-related programs. Immerse yourself in artist talks, engaging panel discussions, tours, and the opportunity to socialize with fellow members and art enthusiasts while enjoying food and drink.  


Exhibition Previews – Insider members and above:

Exhibition Previews offer an exclusive early look at exhibitions before the public opening and a chance to meet the artists.  


Factory 500 Excursions – Factory 500 members and above:

Factory 500 excursions allow members to visit creative sites throughout Pittsburgh related to Mattress Factory artists and exhibitions. These include behind-the-scenes looks at local galleries, artist studios, and other creative spaces!


Invite-only events in the Advocate’s and Director’s Circles:

If you are interested in joining one of Mattress Factory’s Member Circles and want to learn more about invite-only events with artists and exclusive travel, please contact the membership department at membership@mattress.org or call 412-313-5410. 



Q: My membership level doesn’t appear on your website anymore. How do I renew it? 

A: Some membership levels will no longer be active in the new membership program. When your current membership expires, you can renew at another chosen level. 

Q: What is an Annual Pass? Is it the same as the Individual level? 

A: Annual Pass allows one individual to access unlimited admission to the museum for one year. This level is for individuals who use their membership to visit the museum! If you are an individual member who wants to maintain access to core benefits like Coffee Dates, you can renew at the Dual level to continue to enjoy those programs.   

Q: I don’t remember what level I am currently. How do I find out? 

A: If unsure of your membership level, email members@mattress.org or call Rachel at 412-313-5410 to inquire with the membership department.  

Q: What do the “Ignite” levels support? 

A: Advocate’s Circle and Director’s Circle are opportunities for creative catalysts who want to champion the art and artists of the Mattress Factory and build a thriving future together. Dues for these levels are directly funnel towards artist supplies, stipends, and programming. Participation in programming for these levels supports Pittsburgh's art scene's cultivation, growth, and network on the map of international contemporary art.
