Mattress Factory members, join us for our first Matter of Fact(ory) program where members meet with various Departments to enjoy a virtual behind-the-scenes look at what staff is working on at the Museum!

On Friday, April 9 at 5 PM, the Archives Department will join us over Zoom video chat to discuss their important work digitizing the 14,000+ items in the Mattress Factory Greer Lankton Archive.

Greer Lankton was an American artist whose work is autobiographical and revealing of her obsessions. Lankton’s dolls and environments possess a disarming mix of innocence and decadence, hope and pathos. She said her work was “all about me,” reflecting her life as an artist, as a transgender person and a drug addict. But beyond this, and as an outsider, Lankton eloquently explored and questioned the norms of gender and sexuality, as well as the powerful imagery of popular culture and consumerism.

Learn about the history, significance and complexity of Greer Lankton and admire never-before-seen archived items. We hope you can join us!

Once you sign up for the program, an email will be sent with further event information. If you have any questions, please contact the Membership Department at 412-313-5408 or
