Power Up: Corita Kent's Heavenly Pop

Exhibition Website

Feb 25 2018 - May 13 2018

Crocker Art Museum

Sacramento, CA

Nun, printmaker, and activist, Corita Kent developed and used a striking Pop sensibility in her religious art. Drawing on the visual language of advertising and the daily world, her screenprints combine images and words to create bold messages of joy. The nearly thirty prints in this exhibition chronicle her most productive periods including the mid-1960s, when her forceful imagery and message—and her unexpected calling as a nun—led to her greatest popularity.
