OMLO partner Lloyd Pilchen contributed an article entitled, “Exhibition of Jo Mora’s Whimsical Map Delights” to the Jan/Feb issue of The American Surveyor. The article thoughtfully reviews a temporary art exhibit at the Los Angeles Central Library featuring the works of American artist Jo Mora, who is known for “advancing a style of engaging pictorial maps that burst with color and whimsy.”
“Mora’s maps are exceptional for the stories they tell,” Lloyd shares with readers. “Many are bordered by panels that describe local history, folklore, and points of interest. One shows history as a procession of period clothing from hoop skirts to tennis wear. Another recounts land development milestones, from Spanish mission to U.S. government survey to the town’s first subdivision plat.”
In addition to being a member of OMLO’s Municipal Practice, where he serves as legal counsel for cities and public agencies, Lloyd is a land surveyor in California and Illinois.
