National Museum for Women in the Arts presents R(ad)ical Love: Sister Mary Corita
WASHINGTON, DC.- The National Museum of Women in the Arts presents R(ad)ical Love: Sister Mary Corita, featuring 65 never-before-exhibited serigraphs created between 1963 and 1967 by nun, artist and social activist Sister Mary Corita (later Corita Kent, 1918-1986). The ad-inspired, eye-popping prints demonstrate the bold graphic language she developed to communicate her vision of peace and love in the 1960s. On view March 9, 2012 through July 15, 2012. The exhibition showcases Corita’s unique brand of pop art that synthesized the spiritual with the commonplace. Incorporating designs from print ads, street signs, billboards and product packaging, she adapted mainstream advertisements and transformed them into positive messages of love and social righteousness.
