Pop Art by Catholic Nun, Corita Kent Coming to the Andy Warhol Museum

ALPHA OMEGA ARTS
"Things Go Better With" (1967) by Corita Kent
PENNSYLVANIA---The Andy Warhol Museum will present the first full-scale survey covering more than 30 years of work by the American artist, Sister Mary Corita Kent, (1918-1986). In her rich and varied career, she was a designer, teacher, feminist, and activist for civil rights and anti-war causes. Her thousands of posters, murals, and signature serigraphs reflect these combined passions for faith and politics. Kent became one of the most popular graphic artists of the 1960s and ‘70s, and her images remain iconic symbols that address the larger questions and concerns of that turbulent time and continue to influence many artists today.
