Artist, activist, teacher, and devout Catholic, Corita Kent (1918 - 1986) eloquently combined her passions for faith and politics during her rich and varied career. As a teacher at LA's Immaculate Heart College, she fostered a creative and collaborative arts community and developed an interest in printmaking. Her posters, murals, and signature serigraphs combined messages of love and faith with images from popular culture and inventive use of type and colour. For Kent, printmaking was a populist medium to communicate with the world around her. This activist spirit came most alive in the 1960s, when her posters and murals addressed subjects like racism and poverty, U.S. military brutalities in Vietnam, and conflicts between radical and conservative positions in the Catholic Church. Even after the Vietnam war and after she had left the church, she continued to be active in Boston's urban issues, where she produced prints and commissioned works until her death in 1986. Full of the lively colourful work that was so iconically hers, this volume presents four decades of a life dedicated to serving others through and with the language of art.
