Appropriating the art of advertising, Corita Kent slogans are meant to inspire and invigorate against the onslaught of mass communication. Kent’s 20th Century artworks still possess the universal appeal of hope during challenging times. Focusing on three main areas of Kent’s artistic production, her political posters, her commercially successful “Love” prints, and her spiritual message of rejoicing in the everyday, the exhibition will represent her core message of using art as a healing salve and as an agent for social activism.
