Mission Statement

The Mattress Factory is a research and development lab for artists. As a museum of contemporary art, it commissions new site-specific works, presents them to the widest possible audience, and maintains selected individual installations in a growing-and distinctive-permanent collection. The Mattress Factory's physical and organizational environments have grown out of and in response to a central focus on the process of creativity.

Description

The Mattress Factory is an internationally renowned museum of site-specific installation art. Artists are selected to live at the Mattress Factory for 4-6 weeks, and receive complete support, including a stipend, payment for all materials, help with the labor involved in building an installation, etc. Artists create environments based around the characteristics of the space they are given, the history of the city, or whatever occurs to them. Installations are site-specific.
