Hello World! In 2011, the Museum of Motherhood’s opening in Manhattan was delayed due to Hurricane Irene. Now, twelve years and 1,155.3 miles later, we are once again in the midst of mother nature’s impending tropical expression. What will happen? Who knows? But, our new home at The Factory has sent out a memo that they will be closed tomorrow (Tuesday), Sept. 29th. In the meantime, the people of St. Petersburg and Southern Florida are prepping for the worst. We are taking our furry friends, our possessions, and our family of friends and battening down the hatches! In the interest of storm prep, we will delay our opening until this most recent activity has passed. We will keep you posted. Stay safe everyone! Love MoM XoXoXo
We invite you to participate in this new grand experiment in St. Petersburg, Florida (and online), as the Museum of Motherhood explores women’s place and progress in Western society. Together, we will collectively develop new notions of what it means to grow and collaborate together while celebrating our shared legacy of birth, life, and death on this planet.
The Museum Of Motherhood is moving to The Factory in the warehouse district this August in St. Petersburg, Florida. From that new location we plan on executing quarterly exhibits. The first, which runs August 28-Oct., is titled ‘Motherhood On Motion’ curated by Liliana Beltran in collaboration with me, Martha Joy Rose. Additionally we anticipate sharing aspects of our herstorical exhibitions permanently throughout the year, along with a compelling ‘Futurisms’ exhibit, interactive opportunities, and we will have a vibrant store onsite.
