According to her Wikipedia page, Sister Corita Kent was “an artist and an educator who worked in Los Angeles and Boston. She worked almost exclusively with silkscreen and serigraphy, helping to establish it as a fine art medium. Her artwork, with its messages of love and peace, was particularly popular during the social upheavals of the 1960s and 1970s.” She entered the Roman Catholic Church after high school, and attended both Otis College of Art and Design and Chouinard Art Institute and earned her BA from Immaculate Heart College in 1941.
After teaching at Immaculate through 1968, she moved to Boston to pursue a career in art, leading to several hundred serigraph designs for posters, book covers, and murals.
