It is a huge danger to pretend that awful things do not happen.
But you need enough hope to keep going.
I am trying to make hope.
Flowers grow out of darkness.
Who is Corita
Corita Kent was
an internationally known artist who taught at Immaculate Heart College
in Los Angeles. In her work, she brought a dramatic fusion of social,
political, religious, and aesthetic concerns. She refused to make distinctions
between art as aesthetic and art as political statement.
Corita won international acclaim for her colorful silkscreen prints
(serigraphs). During her career she produced over eight hundred
limited print editions. Her works appear in major museums in the United
States, Canada, and Europe.
Her messages of delight in the world and of hope for the possibilities
of overcoming injustice and war were always balanced with this recurrent
theme expressed in her work. "It is a huge danger to pretend that
awful things do not happen. But you need enough hope to keep going.
I am trying to make hope. Flowers grow out of darkness."
Immaculate Heart College Center in Los Angeles offers graduate studies
inspired by Corita Kent.
