SAN ANTONIO – A printmaker and educator at The University of Texas at San Antonio has crafted one of the large skulls that’ll be displayed around downtown for Day of the Dead.
Juan Mora gives us a closer look at what goes into his printmaking process and what the meanings are behind his designs.
The Smithsonian American Art Museum recently selected five of Mora’s prints for their permanent collection.
“This is something incredible and I’m really excited to represent UTSA, San Antonio and mi gente,” Mora said.
