Mattress Factory

Interesting
This late-19C warehouse is one of the few site-specific installation galleries in the US. A handful of artists is chosen each year and given carte-blanche to create their own chefs-d'oeuvre. The results can be capricious, brilliant, or ridiculous but are never boring. An outdoor sculpture garden designed by Winifred Lutz recalls an archaeological dig.
