Mary Corita

Time for some COLOR! Via Lena Corwin, we have the serigraphs of Sister Mary Corita, these from the late 1950s and '60s. Wow...
and my personal favorite...

From The Corita Art Center:

Corita Kent, also known as Sister Mary Corita, gained international fame for her vibrant serigraphs during the 1960s and 1970s. A Sister of the Immaculate Heart of Mary, she ran the Art Department at Immaculate Heart College until 1968 when she left the Order and moved to Boston. Corita's art reflects her spirituality, her commitment to social justice, her hope for peace, and her delight in the world that takes place all around us.

Thanks so much to Drawn! and Lena Corwin for putting these out there.
