Totally awestruck by the story of Sister Corita Kent. Sister Corita was an artist and educator who worked in Los Angeles and Boston. She worked almost exclusively in silkscreen, helping to establish it as a legitimate fine art medium. She entered the Roman Catholic Church after high school, and spread her message of peace and love through her work. This message made her particularly popular during the social upheavals of the 1960s and 1970s, but her revolutionary ideas caused her to be disliked from the heads of the church. Her ideas and legacy live on today through the work she left behind, which include several hundred serigraph designs for posters, book covers and murals.

So happy to have stumbled upon this incredible Levi's Creative Workshop short film about Sister Corita. Check it out.

"The only rule is work.
If you work,
good things will happen."
