The Life and Times of Jo Mora

Cartoon Art Museum

This exhibition features a rarely seen display of the work of Jo Mora (1876–1947), a hugely influential illustrator, sculptor, and cartoonist. Born in Uruguay, Joseph Jacinto "Jo" Mora's work is visible all over the Bay Area, and in greater California from Los Angeles to Yosemite National Park. From his elaborate maps and comic strips to illustrations and sculptures, this exhibition will be the first in the Bay Area to bring Mora's creative genius and artistic accomplishments and legacy to a wider audience.

This is what SF/Arts curator Christian L. Frock had to say about The Life and Times of Jo Mora :

Uruguayan-born American cartoonist, comics artist and illustrator Jo Mora (1876-1947) left an indelible mark on California as an artist with extraordinarily wide reach, creating all manner of output, including books, murals, charts, maps, diagrams, sculptures, children’s books, WPA architectural public art projects and even a commemorative half dollar for the Diamond Jubilee.
