Sister Corita Kent

I had the great fortune of going to see Sister Corita Kent's work this week at Pasadena Museum of California Art. It was jaw dropping printmaking combined with social activism and faith. What an amazing artist and woman. 

It was surprising to see the social activism that she participated in in the 60's and 70's with her art felt so current and poignant today. Here sense of color was crazy amazing. These digital images don't do the in person colors justice.



Her Bread series was really a call to action for hunger but used the popular branding of Wonder Bread to make her statement about feeding the poor and "Give Us This Day Our Daily Bread"


The exhibit sadly closes this weekend November 1. You can check online for heart Corita.org
