Shaped by her experiences as an artist, teacher, and Catholic nun, Corita Kent used her art to bring people together and ignite social change. Her screen prints position words in innovative ways to awaken her viewers to new ideas. In this selection of prints from the 1950s and 1960s, which are drawn from the Museum’s permanent collection, Corita Kent combines vivid color with quotations, everyday slogans, and biblical scripture to create inspirational messages of hope and harmony for humankind.
