Funnel of Dreams film screening & talkback online with MOM: May 22nd, 7-8:30PM EST with Bonnie Silvestri. The film reflects on the global pandemic, and how families need to think about the work/home life paradigm and how Americans might improve things for a better future. The film dives into the history of motherhood, the struggle for women’s rights, and the issues related to family leave in the lives of working parents. At a time when women’s rights are under siege, the United States is the only industrialized nation not providing paid family leave. A director’s discussion will follow the screening. Please join our online community to RSVP to the Zoom.
MOM is thrilled to announce the opening of our new online store! In addition to our awesome new branded product line we will be featuring a new guest artist quarterly throughout the year. In every case, the artist feature will be something that is in-line with MOM’s values of multicultural inclusivity and will pull from multiple mediums. To that end, we are pleased to include Luci Westphal (2/22-5/2022) along with a few special items from her diverse portfolio. The link to the store is here and please read on to learn more about Luci and her creations.
Of course, one day there will be a museum collection about the pandemic. In fact, they’re working on it right now, collecting the pieces of a crisis as it unfolds in the hope that somehow it won’t get lost in the movement of time, that one day we will see ourselves or have ourselves be seen.
