WHY MOM is an annual  exhibition  centered around the idea of  mothers. We all have one, and their presence and absence in our lives is deeply affecting. Some of us become mothers and take on the mantle of that august responsibility. There is love, fear, and anguish in these relationships. In 2019, 18 artists responded to the simple prompt. See what mothers and motherhood has meant to them.


WHY MOM is artist funded. If you would like to support art exhibitions like this one, the way you can help is to purchase a piece of art or to make a donation. All proceeds will go towards future WHY MOM exhibitions.
