2023 Spring Lecture Series
March 30 6:00 – 8:00 PM
Jo Mora, Monterey’s Cowboy Artist with Peter Hiller
AHP proudly present the first installment of our 2023 Spring Lecture Series featuring the distinguished Peter Hiller, author, historian and Jo Mora Collection Curator for the Monterey History and Art Association, as he discusses the life and legacy of artist Jo Mora and Mora’s contributions to the Monterey Bay Community.
The creative of Joseph Jacinto “Jo” Mora (1876-1947) was both compelling and diverse: he was a painter, muralist, sculptor, building designer, cartographer, actor, set designer, cowboy, husband and father. Mora’s artwork sprang from his interest in numerous subjects, including Native Americans and cowboys, the American landscape, California history and its Missions, the classic of Chaucer and Mora’s love of animals. These subjects, including the Christmas holiday, found expression in his work and his lasting creative efforts can be seen throughout California and the West.
Admission is free, donations encouraged. Doors open at 5:30, program begins at 6:00.
