A teacher at Immaculate Heart College in Los Angeles and a civil rights, feminist, and anti-war activist, </span>Corita<span style="line-height: 1.5;">, as she is commonly referred to, was one of the most popular American graphic artists of the </span>1960s<span style="line-height: 1.5;"> and </span>’70s<span style="line-height: 1.5;">.</span></p><p>While several exhibitions have focused on Corita’s 1960s serigraphs, <em>Someday is Now</em> is the first major museum show to survey her entire career, including early abstractions and text pieces as well as the more lyrical works made in the 1970s and 1980s. The exhibition includes over 200 serigraph prints, as well as rarely exhibited photographs Corita used for teaching and documentary purposes.</p><p>Ian Berry, Dayton Director of the <a href="http://www.tang.skidmore.edu/">Tang Museum</a>, joins us in Studio A.</p><p> Mon, 08 Jul 2013 14:10:00 +0000 Joe Donahue 68678 at http://wamc.org "Someday is Now: The Art of Corita Kent" at The Tang
