In 2009 curators Suzy Spence and Leslie Brack researched and built a website on the occasion of their tribute exhibition, The Mood Back Home, an exhibition inspired by Womanhouse, at Momenta Art, Brooklyn.

In 2015 Spence Projects rebuilt the website and added to the multi-media content in order to present archival material as yet unseen. This project has 501c3 status through New York Foundation for the Arts (NYFA) who granted it fiscal sponsorship in 2009.
