M is for Menopause, Baby! is a group exhibition that aims to raise awareness and challenge the myths, stereotypes, and stigma that surround the menopausal journey. By 2025, it’s estimated that 1.1 billion women will be experiencing menopause, or “The Change” as it is frequently called. But what is menopause? What exactly does it mean to be perimenopausal or postmenopausal? What is surgical menopause? What happens to the body during a hot flash? We’ll answer these questions and more by using art to help reframe the narrative about menopause. The exhibition is being presented by Drinking Gourd Gallery in partnership with Rocky Mount Mills, Kiki Piper, and UNC Health Nash. Curating this exhibition are Carol Torian, founder of Drinking Gourd Gallery and Kirsten Moore, founder of Kiki Piper.

M is for Menopause, Baby! opens to the public on World Menopause Day, October 18, 2023. The exhibition will be on view at Rocky Mount Mills, which is located at 1151 Falls Rd in Rocky Mount, North Carolina, and it will be available virtually, as well.
