Sister Corita's Words and Shapes

At the age of eighteen, Sister Corita entered the Sisters of the Immaculate Heart convent, where she was encouraged to pursue her passion for art. She eventually earned her master’s degree and became an art teacher. The pop art movement inspired her to create powerful screen-printed works dealing with political and moral issues from the 1950s to 1980s. Despite the diocese labeling her work as “blasphemous,” Sister Corita continued creating and fighting for what she believed was right.

Through her art, the Pop Art Nun called for an end to the Vietnam War and advocated for women’s rights, civil rights, and tolerance and love in a time of social upheaval. From acclaimed picture book creator Jeanette Winter comes the little-known story of Sister Corita, a nun, educator, and activist who became a celebrated pop artist while creating works meant to inspire good in others.

Description

"Illustrations feature small vignettes done in Winter’s signature style and encased in ample white space, with occasional double-page spreads; they include the kind of colorful patterned backgrounds Kent was known for, many of them a series of dots. Kent’s tour through the city with students gives readers their perspective; children will look anew at details with an empty square as a finder, just as Kent had her students do.... A deeply reverent tribute." — Kirkus Reviews
