Sister Mary Corita Kent: Selected Works


Sister Mary Corita Kent: Selected Works

Davidson Galleries, Seattle, WA - Sep 6 – 29

by Matthew Kangas

A Catholic nun who was infl uenced by and then extended the visual ideas of Andy Warhol – bright color, mass production, everyday subject matter, embrace of adver-tising’s appearance – Sister Corita (1918-1986) has a stature that has steadily grown since her death at age 68. Davidson Galleries selectively highlights her art in a small but intense survey. By the end of the 1960s, she had left the convent at the height of her fame yet continued to revolutionize graphic design and protest art.
