Open Box – Flower quotation of the day

Corita Kent (1918 -1986), born Frances Elizabeth Kent and also known as Sister Mary Corita Kent, was an American Roman Catholic religious sister, artist, designer and educator. Key themes in her work included Christianity, and social justice. She was also a teacher at the Immaculate Heart College.

Corita Kent was born Frances Elizabeth Kent. As a woman from a working poor family, there were not a lot of options for her in terms of work. At 18 years of age Kent entered the Sisters of the Immaculate Heart, which were known to be very progressive and welcomed creativity.

She joined a teaching order, taking the name Sister Mary Corita. Initially she taught young children on an Inuit Reservation in British Columbia until returning to Los Angeles to study for her bachelor’s degree at Immaculate Heart College and her master’s degree at University of Southern California.

She was the head of the art department at Immaculate Heart College; where, she also taught a wide variety of different painting styles. Her artwork contained her own spiritual expression and love for her God.

Sister Corita Kent’s primary medium was silk screen, also known as Serigraphy. She became self-taught after she sent away for a DIY silk screening kit. Her innovative methods pushed back the limitations of two-dimensional media of the times. Kent’s emphasis on printing was partially due to her wish for democratic outreach, as she wished for affordable art for the masses.[

Her artwork, with its messages of love and peace, was particularly popular during the social upheavals of the 1960s and 1970s.

In the early 1970s, she entered an extremely prolific period in her career, including the Rainbow Swash design on the LNG storage tank in Boston, and the 1985 version of the United States Postal Service’s special Love stamp.

In recent years, she has gained increased recognition for her role in the pop art movement. Critics and theorists previously failed to count her work as part of any mainstream canon; but, in recent years there has been a resurgence of attention given to Kent.

As both a nun and a woman making art in the twentieth century, she was in many ways cast to the margins of the different movements she was a part of.

Corita Kent’s art was her activism, and her spiritually-informed social commentary promoted love and tolerance.
