Sign Language: The Pop Art Of Sister Corita

February 7 2009 - June 3 2009

This collection of serigraph prints by Sister Corita Kent (1918–1986) is drawn from the MAM Collections.

The works are indicative of Kent's use of text and typography as an essential element of the composition. Kent was an activist in the '60s and was known as a poet-artist. This is the first time the MAM has shown this collection of works. 

The recently published book Come Alive! The Spirited Art of Sister Corita is available for purchase at the MAM bookstore.
