Unless you suffer from glophobia, there's something magically fun about balloons. Blow up and decorate a crazy balloon to add to our elevator for people to interact with, and change the atmosphere of the space! Inspired by Yayoi Kusama's past installation Dots Obsession.

ARTLAB: FILL THIS SPACE!

Saturday, September 6th, 2014

1-4pm

The Mattress Factory 

FREE with museum admission

 

If you had a room you could fill with anything, what would it be? The Mattress Factory artist residency program allows artists to experiment with unusual materials and make site-specific artwork. Come to the Mattress Factory and fill a room with bubbles, fan, yarn, fabric, light, sound and shadows, or write down what you might do if you had a gallery all to yourself!

Educator Open House: Fall Exhibitions

Tuesday, September 16, 2014

4-6pm
FREE
RSVP by clicking here



The Mattress Factory welcomes educators of every discipline for a FREE sneak preview of our fall exhibition. Come see the new installations, meet most of the artists, ask questions, learn about how to make connections to the classroom and all the programming possibilities that exist for teachers to collaborate with the museum. We know the school year is just underway, but take a quick escape from the classroom to partake in a one-time only event that will re-energize you for months to come. Meet our fabulous Education Team and find out more about how you can bring your students on a field trip or get involved with our programming.

 

Galleries in the museum will be open from 4-6pm with light refreshments. This is a drop-in event with no official tours (although several of the artists will be available and in their installations to speak with you), there is a lot to see so be sure to give yourself enough time to visit all the galleries. 

 

This event is free but space is limited and advanced registration is requested. Please RSVP here. Contact felice [at] mattress [dot] org with questions.
