Here's a great preview of our fall exhibitions! Opening Reception tonight from 7–9pm. 
Sadly, we will not be able to have Chiharu Shiota's installation available for viewing tonight because we are working to resolve concerns with the building code.
It's been 35 years since the Mattress Factory, a museum of installation art on the North Side, opened to the public, and on Sept. 12 ...

Seems over priced. Full price despite only two of the three buildings were open. Waiting for the elevator took a long time, would be helpful if stairs were open. A few exhibits were interesting, but seemed to be lacking in overall quantity for the square footage of the place.

The new installation in the MF row house is a must see in Pittsburgh. Will be there for the next three years, so no rush, but be sure to get to it.

The Mattress Factory, an installation art museum, is one of my favorite museums in all the world. Installation art means the pieces take up entire rooms, creating three-dimensional immersive experiences. You are most often literally in the art piece, fully surrounded by the artists' vision. Tucked in a run-down looking neighborhood of single-family dwellings, the Mattress Factory is a true hidden gem of Pittsburgh. I'm constantly introducing people to this museum. At the Mattress Factory, the emotive ranges of the pieces include mystery, humility, and awe (Bill Smith, Spherodendron), to age and abandonment (Chiharu Shiota, Trace of Memory), to reexamining our relationship with space, light, and darkness (James Turrell), to looking into the hurt, obsessive mind of a transsexual in the mid-90s (Greer Lankton, It's All About ME, Not You).

All I have to say is WOW. I do not consider myself artsy, or even very cultural for that matter. This place brings a modern touch to what art is, and I can guarantee that you will be impressed with at least 2 of the pieces.

Young and offbeat but not cheap. Nontraditional and non established art. Fun in a historic neighborhood.

Not your average art on the wall gallery. Would recommend a look. However can be expensive unless on a event price.
