Artist, Activist, and Ex-Nun Corita Kent Gets a New Monograph

As a nun who embraced both pop culture and contemporary art, Corita Kent refracted the messages of religion through the populist medium of printmaking, leaving a legacy of vibrant art that is just now being fully explored. A new book from Prestel, Someday is Now: The Art of Corita Kent, published in conjunction with a museum survey of the same name, delves into the three decades of work created by the activist artist.
