Corita-Kent-Go-Slow

Today, the 20th of November, marks artist Corita Kent’s birthday.  Read all about her in this excellent post from The Brooklyn Rail.

Corita Kent, also known as Sister Mary Corita, gained international fame for her vibrant serigraphs during the 1960s and 1970s.  A Sister of the Immaculate Heart of Mary, she ran the Art Department at Immaculate Heart College until 1968 when she left the Order and moved to Boston.

Corita’s art reflects her spirituality, her commitment to social justice, her hope for peace, and her delight in the world that takes place all around us.

And for fellow artists, check out her inspiring list of art department rules:
