FREE with Museum Admission
Museum Lobby @ 500 Sampsonia Way
We are thrilled to have artist Scott Hocking join us for ARTLab as we create unexpected three-dimensional objects out of Paper Mache and other fun materials influenced by the artist's installation Coronal Mass Ejection in the lower level of the Mattress Factory as part of the Detroit: Artists in Residence. With humor and poignancy, Scott Hocking manages to tackle multiple subjects such as gender, industrial history, the world's religion mythologies, alchemy and astronomy in a single installation. Join us as we work with the artist in creating our very own mixed-media installation in our lobby!
Twice a month, on the first and third Saturdays, visitors are invited to participate in a range of art-making activities that illuminate the creative process of in-residence artists. Projects and materials are developed to complement current and ongoing exhibitions. This program is free with museum admission and highly recommended for individuals or families with children of all ages.
Mattress Factory Education and Community progams are made possible by the generous support from the Allegheny Regional Assets District, Milton & Sally Avery Arts Foundation, Jack Buncher Foundation, Sheila Fortune Foundation, Grable Foundation, Pennsylvania Council on the Arts and Surdna Foundation.
