Sister Corita: The Joyous Revolutionary

The 2009 fall semester begins with an exhibition of prints by Sister Corita Kent from August 19 to October 24.  Dianne Drayse from Ogdensburg Free Academy will be doing curriculum development, and she pointed me to a few videos on YouTube including this one by Aaron Rose, an independent curator from L.A.  He organized an exhibition of Sister Corita’s work called Passion for the Possible, which was on display in Berlin in 2008.  In the video, he talks about some of the similarities between Corita’s work and the work of graffiti artists, then and now–all of whom he thinks were/are social outsiders in one way or another.  Check it out!
