Corita Kent: heroes and sheroes 

September 13 through December 10, 2023

Opening celebration: September 14 | Corita Kent Day: November 20

Printed between 1968 and 1969, heroes and sheroes represents a body of bold colorful graphic words and images created by the artist, educator, and advocate for social justice, Corita Kent (1918-1986). Adapting the visual language of pop art in the midst of social and political justice, Kent’s work conveys messages of faith, acceptance and love supporting civil rights, labor, anti-war movements, nuclear disarmament and the political assassinations that would define the 1960s. This exhibition is organized in collaboration with the Corita Art Center of Los Angeles.

Lisa Congdon: Hold it Lightly 

September 13 through December 10, 2023

Opening celebration: September 14 | Artist Talk: September 15

Illustrator and fine artist Lisa Congdon's current work, Hold it Lightly, explores themes of joy, liberation, and radical inclusion, displayed on printed matter featuring her bold, colorful illustrations and hand lettering. Exhibited in conversation with Corita Kent's heroes and sheroes series, Congdon's work reflects the profound personal impact of Kent's legacy.
