Be a part of the Urban Garden Party at the Mattress Factory Museum! The Mattress Factory is celebrating 40 years of site-specific art. The Urban Garden Party is the Mattress Factory's annual, signature fundraiser event with food and drink from 40 vendors, a silent art auction, performances, and DJs. It transcends the boundaries of age and economics to bring together a colorful crowd that sets this fundraiser apart from any other. All proceeds benefit the Mattress Factory's artistic programs, exhibitions and education outreach. Volunteers monitor exhibits in the galleries, greet and direct visitors, and help set-up, clean-up, and break down at the end of the event. Volunteers must be 21+, work one 2-hour gallery attending shift in the museum as a prerequisite before the event, and attend one training session in an evening the week of June 5th. The night of the party, you will be assigned a 1.5-3 hour shift between 5pm and 11:30pm on Friday, June 16th, 2017. Volunteering at the Urban Garden Party grants volunteers free access to the event when off-shift. Please email volunteer @ for more info.
