EXCERPT FROM AUTHENTIC FLORIDA ARTICLE:
In 2010, Rose, aided by a team of academics and businesswomen, started the first ever Museum of Motherhood on the Upper Eastside of Manhattan. Relationships with local universities followed and students became interested in studying the art, science, and history of mothers, mothering, and motherhood. M.O.M. (as it is known), became a destination point for thousands of travelers in New York City.
In 2017, Rose moved the museum to the Artist Enclave of Historic Kenwood (St. Petersburg, FL) so she could continue her work and be nearer to her sons. A 1920s bungalow serves as an artist residency space for ongoing exhibitions on motherhood, where students and researchers further their work about mothers and families.
