Twenty contemporary artists and writers reimagine Corita Kent's iconic creative manifesto.
Known for her vibrant and powerful serigraphs, Corita Kent left an equally important legacy through her teaching. In the late 1960s, she and her students at the Immaculate Heart College developed their Art Department Rules. From Consider everything an experiment"" to ""Be happy whenever you can manage it,"" these ten deceptively simple principles capture the magic of Corita's approach to creativity, culture, and activism. In this volume, ten writers and ten artists look back at the rules andshow us how vital and resonant they remain today. The wide-ranging roster of contributors includes Vashti Harrison, Lisa Congdon, Natacha Ramsay-Levi, Dan Paley, and Erin Jang.
COMPELLING AND INSPIRING ARTIST: Corita Kent was a Roman Catholic nun, a wildly popular pop artist, a social justice advocate, and a beloved art teacher. Her Art Department Rules continue to speak to people today. This book celebrates the way Corita's work resonates through contemporary art and offers inspiration for your own creative practice.
TWENTY AMAZING CONTRIBUTORS: Illustrators, designers, educators, curators, former students and colleagues of Corita's-the illustrious contributors to this volume offer a kaleidoscope of perspectives on the artist's legacy.
