The Life and Times of Jo Mora

The Cartoon Art Museum’s next major exhibition features one of the first exhibitions of the work of Jo Mora, a hugely influential illustrator, sculptor, and cartoonist. Born in Uruguay, Joseph Jacinto “Jo” Mora (1876–1947) created art that is visible all over the Bay Area, and in greater California from Los Angeles to Yosemite National Park. From public statuary in (multiple locations in San Francisco’s Golden Gate Park) to architectural bas relief panels on the (Lincoln Mercury Building, 1000 Van Ness, San Francisco) and murals (Holy Names College, 3500 Mountain Blvd, Oakland), Mora’s work is part of our local landscape and the iconography that defines “California.” The story of Jo Mora’s life and creative accomplishments never fails to engage those people who discover him, and will introduce Mora’s creative genius and artistic accomplishments and legacy to a wider audience.
