The Mattress Factory: Contemporary Art in Pittsburgh

The Mattress Factory was founded in 1977 in an abandoned Sterns & Foster mattress factory, by artists to support artists-in-residence to create site-specific installations. Since then, the museum has presented and commissioned new installation and performance works by more than 650 artists, and contributed to the revitalization of the Mexican War Streets neighborhood on the North Shore.
