The Annex serves as an incubator MoM project. We want the museum vision come alive in St. Petersburg, Florida. In order to do this, attention needs to shift. To that end, the next year will be almost exclusively focused on building our coffers through memberships, donations, grants, and partnerships. We must do this if MoM is going to thrive. Please join me in this affirmation and keep this top of mind and action!
There’s been a lot of activity at MOM over the last several months. I thought it might be good to connect everyone and keep you all updated and also take this opportunity to introduce our newest team member, Emma Andrews. Welcoming her is a bonafide full circle experience as her mother was one of the first team members here at MOM almost 20 years ago.
We ask you to join us in welcoming our new incoming Living Board President for 2022-2023 Zabrina Shkurti! We are ecstatic to have her join our team and can’t wait to see all she will bring to MOM. Zabrina is a Florida native, part of the English Department at the University of South Florida as a PhD Student, and an amazing mother to two boys. Our Living Board sees to the ongoing mission of the Museum of Motherhood locally in St. Petersburg, Florida.
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.
