The Mattress Factory in Pittsburgh’s North Side neighborhood is not exactly the type of factory you think it is. It’s actually not really a factory at all and there are definitely no mattresses there, unless they are being used as a piece of art. Although, the building was once the home of a Stearns and Foster mattress warehouse. This contemporary art space is home to life size, full room craftsmanship by in-residence artists.
Tonight from 7-11 PM is Mattress Factory’s annual Urban Garden Party fundraiser, featuring house band Meeting of Important People. VIP tickets have already been sold out but some general admission tickets remain. GA tickets are $110 for non-members and $85 for Mattress Factory members. Other performers include, MC Comedian Mike Travers, DJ Mad Maxx, MACHETE – Kisumontao and DJ Orquidea, Kierra Darshell’s Divas of Drag and a miraculous magic show by Baffling Bob. All proceeds for this 21+ event, benefit the Mattress Factory’s artistic programs, exhibitions & education outreach.
