The Hollywood Museum to Present an Industry Moms Mother's Day Exhibit

Hollywood Mothers - The term brings to mind images ranging from Mrs. Brady to Mommy Dearest. The reality falls somewhere in between.

"For most, our mother is your first friend, your best friend, your forever friend. Our mother's love is unconditional and only grows stronger over a lifetime," says Donelle Dadigan (Founder/President of the Hollywood Museum). "In celebration of this one-of-a-kind relationship, the Hollywood Museum is presenting a never-before-seen collection of images dedicated to that special woman in our lives for the week leading into and following Mother's Day. Sons and Daughters have a special bond with their mothers and they pass on that love to their own children. Our exhibit personifies that fact, given the overwhelming response from entertainments elite that responded to the call for entries, offering their favorite and private images to say "Happy Mother's Day" to celebrate the most caring and inspiring women in their lives."

WHAT: Two years in the making and originally scheduled for Mother's Day in 2020. This remarkable collection features photos dedicated to the most celebrated working moms in entertainment, in loving and amusing images with their families. The Hollywood Museum has collected personal and professional photographs from some of the most recognized names in TV and film, featuring their own mothers or as moms themselves, and organized an exhibit in the museum's famous Historic Photo Gallery.
