Corita Kent – mixing pop-art, love and hope.


Corita Kent, also known as Sister Mary Corita Kent. At 18 she entered the religious order and in 1968 she left to pursue her artistic work undertaken at the convent.

In 1962, Corita, then in her mid-forties went to see Andy Warhol’s exhibition of soup can paintings; later, she recalled that “coming home she saw everything like Andy Warhol”. It was a seminal moment in her transformation from Sister Corita Kent, a convent school art teacher, into the artist who became known as the Pop Art nun! Find out more about Corita Kent here
