The Museum of Motherhood is grateful to Materials for the Arts for providing great resources and items for upcoming exhibits.

Thank you for your recent donation to Materials for the Arts. The museum looks forward to using your recent mannequin donation to create a guest exhibit at the O’Malley Library at Manhattan College beginning September 2014. This will be on view through the 2014 fall semester.
Here is a little more about who we are:
We are the first and only facility of its kind. The Museum Of Motherhood (M.O.M.) is an International museum and teaching facility that focuses on mothers, fathers, and families. Our mission is to start great conversations, feature thought-provoking exhibits, and share information and education that support agency and compassionate awareness. We believe a more comprehensive understanding of pregnancy; birth and the value of caregiving-work will lead to healthier and happier homes, more productive workplaces and better social policies.
Working with students and universities, we have hosted internships for 60 youth each year focused on diversity and community outreach. Ongoing programs have impacted residents, neighboring boroughs and influenced families as far as Guatemala and Liberia, affecting the global landscape as it pertains to women’s health, wellness and social standing.
Academic partnerships have resulted in ongoing course studies in the field of ‘Mother Studies’ and annual events reach thousands of students and lay-people annually.
We thank you for your support. On behalf of myself, the museum and as a recent recipient of items from Materials for the Arts, we are grateful.
