Now open through December 29th
Corita Kent, formerly Sister Mary Corita, was an artist and teacher with an innovative approach to design, education, and messaging. By the 1960’s, her vibrant serigraphs were drawing attention for their thought-provoking and prevailing topics, combining art with social activism. Corita’s work reflected her concerns about poverty, racism, and war, and her messages of peace, hope, and social justice continue to resonate with audiences today. The Ali Center will host a compilation of Corita’s work from 1969, all of which showcase her hope during a time of turmoil. The exhibit will open to the public on Friday, October 11th and be on display until Friday, January 3rd. Entry to the exhibition will be included in the general admission price.
