Friday Photos: Welcome Baby Eva!

This will be a special Mother’s Day for our friend Melissa–she just welcomed a precious new addition last month! Baby Eva was born on April 18 at 8:04 am, weighing 7 lbs 14 oz. Both mama, dad, little brother Elijah, and baby are fabulous and enjoying their time together! Check out this little cutie:

We want to recognize all the other moms out there this weekend too, so stop by our Center for Creative Connections on Mother’s Day for a special gift: we’ll be giving out booklets of responses to our artwork Starry Crown, containing words of wisdom and insight contributed by our visitors.

Happy Mother’s Day!

Friday Photos: Hot Mamas

To paraphrase one of my favorite movies–Father of the Bride Part 2–spring is in full bloom, and so are two of my co-workers.  For the first time in recent memory, we have not one, but two moms-to-be in the Teaching Programs and Partnerships department.  Loryn is expecting a girl in August and Melissa‘s baby boy is due in September.  To celebrate, this photo post spotlights some of the mothers in the DMA’s collection.  Congratulations to Loryn and Melissa, and happy Mother’s Day to all of you!

Friday Photo Post: Mother's Day

Mother’s Day is an annual holiday that recognizes motherhood, mothers,  and their contributions to our lives. In 1868, “Mother’s Friendship Day” was established to bring together families that had been divided during the Civil War. By 1910, Mother’s Day as we now know it was established and continues to be a popular day to celebrate mothers.  Since this Sunday is Mother’s Day, I highlighted works of art with mothers in various roles. If you are a mother, I hope you enjoy this photo post and your special day!
