Art Exhibition: “heroes & sheroes” by Corita Kent

Corita Kent’s “heroes and sheroes” will be on view at Saint Mary’s College Museum of Art from September 13 - December 10, 2023 during operating hours, Wednesday - Sunday, 10 AM to 4 PM. Admission is free.

Printed between 1968 and 1969, “heroes and sheroes” represents a body of bold, colorful graphic words and images created by the artist, educator, and advocate for social justice, Corita Kent (1918-1986). Adapting the visual language of pop art in the midst of social and political upheaval, Kent’s work conveys messages of faith, acceptance, and love in response to the civil rights, labor, and anti-war movements that defined the decade.

This exhibition is in collaboration with the Corita Kent Art Center of Los Angeles. (Image credit: “heroes and sheroes” featuring work by Corita Kent, exhibition gallery view, Photograph by Francis Tatem, 2023.)
