Hope Mora is a visual artist currently working with the unaccompanied migrant children population in West Texas. Her work is an ongoing exploration of how the dynamic between hard labor and resilience is sustained within communities, specifically in her hometown Pecos, Texas. Mora’s research looks into working life, regional culture, economy, and ideas of home. She documents how communities joyfully celebrate their lives through family, food, music, dance, and fashion using photography, video, sound, and text.

Her work has been commissioned by The New Yorker and Vogue, and has shown work in selected gallery and public space exhibitions in Central Texas and Western New York such as; Mexic-Arte Museum, Public Art San Antonio, Squeaky Wheel Film & Media Art Center, The Buffalo Institute for Contemporary Art (BICA) among others. Hope Mora received her MFA at The University at Buffalo, New York and BFA from Texas State University in San Marcos.
