Paying the Bills – The Ephemeral World of Jo Mora 

Joseph Jacinto “Jo” Mora (1876-1947) traveled the world and did it all based on his diverse abilities as an artist and author. In addition to painting, illustrating, sculpting, and writing, he created ephemera to generate income for his family. Peter is the author of The Life and Times of Jo Mora, Iconic Artist of the American West, and the Jo Mora Collection Curator for the Monterey History and Art Association
