Sign Language: The Pop Art of Sister Corita
February 27 – June 13, 2009
Gallery Talk with Ted Hughes, MAM Registrar: April 3, 7 PM
Missoula Art Museum (MAM) / MAM is honored to present the serigraph prints, drawn from the MAM Collections, by Sister Corita Kent (November 20, 1918 – September 18, 1986). The works are indicative of Kent’s use of text and typography as an essential element of the composition. Kent was an activist in the 60’s and was known as a poet-artist. This is the first time the MAM has shown this collection of works. The recently published book “Come Alive! The Spirited Art of Sister Corita” is available in the MAM Bookstore.
