Opening Reception for We Care: Works by Corita Kent
Corita Kent was an artist, an educator, and an activist for social justice and the anti-war movement. A member of the religious order of Mary of the Immaculate Heart, Corita used her faith, her distinct design sensibility, and aesthetic influences from packaging to Pop Art to create her unique prints that inspire attention to and action against the critical issues of her time. The selection of boldly colored text-based serigraphs is on loan from Saint Mary’s Seminary of Roland Park. We Care is presented along with the Special Collections & Archives’ exhibition of the same title, which documents the intersection of the Goucher community and Baltimore Area activism and protests throughout the college’s history.
This event is generous supported by the Frinds of the Library, Maryland State Arts Council and Baltimore County Commission on Arts and Sciences.
