Pittsburgh’s Mattress Factory museum will have extended Wednesday and Sunday hours beginning Aug. 7. Shown are details from Patte Loper’s 2019 exhibition, “Laboratory for Other Worlds,” in the North Side art space.

Beginning Aug. 7, the Mattress Factory museum in Pittsburgh’s North Side will offer extended hours on Sunday mornings and Wednesday evenings.

New hours will be 10 a.m.-5 p.m. Sundays and 10 a.m.-8 p.m. Wednesdays.

The museum’s MF Café also will begin extended hours that day. The café will be open 10 a.m.-4 p.m. Sundays and 11 a.m.-7 p.m. Wednesdays.

“Weekend afternoons are the busiest times at the museum. The additional hours on Sunday mornings will allow guests to visit before the afternoon rush,” says Mandy Wilson, director of marketing and communications. “Wednesday evening hours will provide an alternative to the weekend for those who are unable to make it to the museum on weekdays.”

The Mattress Factory has presented and commissioned new installation and performance works by more than 750 established and emerging artists, and has been hailed as the best museum for installation art in the United States. Its outreach programs serve more than 30,000 students, teachers, adults and families annually.

TribLIVE commenting policy

You are solely responsible for your comments and by using you agree to our Terms of Service.

We moderate comments. Our goal is to provide substantive commentary for a general readership. By screening submissions, we provide a space where readers can share intelligent and informed commentary that enhances the quality of our news and information.

While most comments will be posted if they are on-topic and not abusive, moderating decisions are subjective. We will make them as carefully and consistently as we can. Because of the volume of reader comments, we cannot review individual moderation decisions with readers.

We value thoughtful comments representing a range of views that make their point quickly and politely. We make an effort to protect discussions from repeated comments either by the same reader or different readers

We follow the same standards for taste as the daily newspaper. A few things we won't tolerate: personal attacks, obscenity, vulgarity, profanity (including expletives and letters followed by dashes), commercial promotion, impersonations, incoherence, proselytizing and SHOUTING. Don't include URLs to Web sites.

We do not edit comments. They are either approved or deleted. We reserve the right to edit a comment that is quoted or excerpted in an article. In this case, we may fix spelling and punctuation.

We welcome strong opinions and criticism of our work, but we don't want comments to become bogged down with discussions of our policies and we will moderate accordingly.

We appreciate it when readers and people quoted in articles or blog posts point out errors of fact or emphasis and will investigate all assertions. But these suggestions should be sent via e-mail. To avoid distracting other readers, we won't publish comments that suggest a correction. Instead, corrections will be made in a blog post or in an article.
