Every time I go to the Mattress Factory, Pittsburgh's museum for contemporary installation art, I know that I am going to have a truly unique experience. The current exhibit, Feminist And..., presenting new work by six women artists curated by Dr. Hilary Robinson, does not disappoint. Carrie Mae Weems' piece, Lincoln, Lonnie and Me - A Story in 5 Parts, a video projection on mylar, is incredibly vivid and haunting. Go see it!
