Mother Road Studios (MRS) is an all-new, all-inclusive public benefit organization.
The Mother Road (Route 66), was a symbol of a changing America. Known as “America’s Highway,” it illustrated the evolution from an unpaved road to a superhighway. It was an economic and social link from the Midwest, to the West, offering an artery for people to change their lives and create better opportunities for themselves and their families.
Our mission at Mother Road Studios is just that … to transform and enrich lives by creating inclusive opportunities through expressive art, fashion and entertainment.
