MoM creates, produces, and presents artistic, educational and cultural content that studies and supports women, mothers, and those exploring reproductive identity.
MoM seeks to marry education, herstory, creativity, culture, and community for the benefit of all with a special emphasis on women who are mothers by amplifying their voices. By collecting examples of the scope and breadth of the massive contributions m/others make, their works become recognized and generations benefit from the legacy and documentation of the collective cultural voice.
MoM seeks to highlight women’s achievements and honor their courage through the promotion of the creation of artistic and cultural content. Namely, we seek to educate and celebrate diverse M/others’ stories through ‘Motherhood In Motion’ exhibits, publications, presentations, artistic displays, and community gatherings that will result in a permanent home, in perpetuity, for the Museum Of Motherhood.
These displays and presentations are made visible through private showings, exhibitions, educational content, large-scale group gatherings, hosted events, presentations, partnerships, journals, media, conferences, and online.
In fact, we have been doing this since 1997 when we first identified a ‘mother’s art movement’ through the MomsRock legacy pioneered by the band Housewives On Prozac (1997), then through the formation of the International Festival Series MaMaPaLooZa (2002), which evolved to include our first New York Non-Profit; Motherhood Foundation Inc. (2005), and finally through our creation of our Florida Non-Profit MOM Art Annex (2019) and our ongoing work through the Museum of Motherhood. Since those early days, we have proudly participated in the active development of a body of work inspired by the experiences of the people at the center of the m/other, mothering, and motherhood experience.
