Artist Intervention: Joseph Josué Mora

Joseph Mora’s art practice focuses on portraying his reality as a DACA-mented immigrant living in the United States. Using the design made by Monarch Butterflies’ migration path, this workshop brings forth ideas about how humans are the only species with federal laws that dictate how we migrate. In Mexican-American Culture, Monarch Butterflies are used as a motif to represent undocumented Mexicans who have made the journey from Mexico to the United States.
