FREE with Museum Admission
Museum Lobby @ 500 Sampsonia Way
What does the future of renewable energy look like? Visitors will interact with cutting edge clean energy technologies and explore how they can be sculpted into power plants that are also works of art. Every two years, the Land Art Generator Initiative (LAGI) invites teams from around the world to design large-scale public artworks that also generate clean energy for hundreds of homes in the cities in which they are constructed. Now it's your turn. Imagine your neighborhood off the coal-fired grid by designing your own land art generator!
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.
