Peter Hiller on artist Jo Mora (1876-1947)

March 27, 2023 @ 6:00 pm PDT

Sponsored by The Book Club of California

MONDAY, MARCH 27, 2023
Contempo Jo Mora

6:00 PM – 7:15 PM Pacific
In-person and virtual Presentation; all are welcome.

The creative career of Joseph Jacinto “Jo” Mora (1876-1947) was both compelling and diverse. A painter, muralist, sculptor, building designer, cartographer, actor, set designer, cowboy, and husband and father, Mora’s art work sprang from his interests in numerous subjects including Native Americans and cowboys, the American landscape, California history and its missions, the classics of Chaucer, and Mora’s love of animals.

The artistic legacy of Jo Mora continues to evolve. Upon Mora’s passing in 1947, his son Jo Jr. lovingly worked to spread the word about his father’s creative accomplishments. That endeavor has been passed along to Peter Hiller, the Jo Mora Collection Curator.

Join Peter as he shares how Jo Mora’s art has, and continues to, find its way into popular culture and the wider world in both traditional and surprising ways.

In in-person and virtual presentation by Peter Hiller, author, historian, and Jo Mora Collection Curator for the Monterey History and Art Association
