After reading that great list of rules I had to know more about the woman who wrote them. That woman was Sister Corita Kent, who had a huge influence on pop art in the 60's. Kent was a nun at the Immaculate Heart Convent in Los Angeles, as well as a teacher in the art department at the Immaculate Heart College. I listened to the show about her on Weekend America and looked at some of her very familiar art and I'm so eager to learn more about this fascinating woman. As soon as I'm finished with the book I'm reading I plan on starting in on Come Alive, a book about her art and her life.
It's impossible to post just one of her amazing prints, I'm in love with so so many of them. This one reads:
damn everything but the circus --e.e. cummings ...damn everything that is grim, dull, motionless, unrisking, inward turning, damn every thing that won't get in the circle, that won't enjoy, that won't throw its heart into the tension, surprise, fear and delight of the circus, the round world, full of existence...S.
