During the 1960s, a time of great social change and unrest in America, Sister Mary Corita Kent (1918-1986) taught challenging art classes that emphasised the importance of love, creativity and community. She also made hundreds of screen prints to communicate her message as widely as possible. The posters combined simple imagery and text in bold colours, often taken directly from existing graphics, as a way to ‘invigorate and inspire all people who have to live with the onslaught of advertising’. Her prints included quotes from diverse sources, including Ralph Waldo Emerson, Albert Camus, ee cummings, The Beatles, and The Bible.
