Sister Corita Kent

Shannon Gerard & Mary Tremonte


Power Up!

Corita Kent was a radical educator, silkscreen printing pop artist, and activist agitator whose pedagogical and political exuberance extended to Civil Rights, war resistance, feminist critique, and a joyful participatory body politic. She was the head of the art department at the Immaculate Heart College in Los Angeles in the 1960s, and drew free thinkers such as Charles and Ray Eames, Buckminster Fuller, and John Cage to visit her school. Her impact on her students is far-reaching and her work continues to motivate new generations of socially-engaged makers and doers.
