ST. PETERSBURG — Inside a historic bungalow on 28th Street North, a dream is being nurtured.
It’s an incubator for a museum dedicated to motherhood and also the home of its founder: artist, activist and mother Martha Joy Rose.
Hailing from New York, Rose said she was born in Ithaca, worked in Manhattan and raised kids in Westchester. She previously taught mother studies and sociology of family at Manhattan College. Now, relocated in St. Pete, she hopes to rock Florida FORWARD by building a Museum of Motherhood in the Sunshine City.
A women’s museum for mothers. All kinds of mothers. All kinds of people.
I’m Joy Rose, the founder of the Museum of Motherhood. I’m inviting you to add your service, business, organization to our online directory. It’s free and open access to the public so others can find you – Just $30 to register yourself.
Or become an annual member of MoM and we’ll send you some goodies like these fun fab bracelets.
Let’s raise our voices. Let’s amp up the volume! We’re here – with a legacy project – and we want to share your stories with the world.
