Corita Kent was a Catholic nun in the order of the Immaculate Heart of Mary order.  She is also known as Sister Mary Corita Kent. As an artist and an educator she worked in Los Angeles and Boston. Her work was almost exclusively with silkscreen and serigraphy; and she helped establish it as a fine art medium. Her artwork, with its messages of love and peace, was particularly popular during the social upheavals of the 1960s and 1970s. She created several hundred serigraph designs, for posters, book covers, and murals.
