Overview

Corita (1918-1986 aka Sister Mary Corita and Corita Kent) gained international fame for her vibrant serigraphs during the 1960s and 1970s. A Sister of the Immaculate Heart of Mary from 1936, she ran the Art Department at Immaculate Heart College in Los Angeles until 1968 when she left her religious community and moved to Boston. Corita's art reflects her spirituality, her commitment to social justice, her hope for peace and her fascination with life and the world around her. Her artistic aesthetic is characterized by the use of popular culture, such as song lyrics, literary sources and advertising slogans as raw material for meaning-filled bursts of text and color produced in limited edition serigraphs.
