Michelle Obama is honoring the woman who gave her “non-stop, unconditional love” this Mother’s Day in a most monumental way.

“Hi everyone, I’m Michelle, also known as Marian Robinson‘s daughter,” the former first lady said to kick off a video on Friday announcing news on plans for an exhibit called “Opening the White House” in her mother’s honor at the Obama Presidential Center.

“It’s infused with so many of the values that my mother instilled in me, community, family, bringing people in, creating a warm, welcoming space where everyone feels at home,” Obama, 58, said of plans for the exhibit at what will be a sprawling campus on Chicago’s South Side.

The Obamas broke ground in September at the site, which will eventually hold a museum, park, a tower with a viewing platform, an athletic facility, a fruit and vegetable garden, a playground, a branch of the city’s public library and more.

The exhibit honoring Robinson “will feature a scale replica of the East Room, where we held big dinners, replicas of the Blue Room, where we decorated a huge Christmas tree for the holidays, and also a replica of the South Lawn, where we hosted garden tours and Easter egg rolls, where we did state arrivals and so much more,” Obama said.
