Joyous Revolutionary - Premium Classic Tee - Limited Time


Join the joy revolution with these two color neon screenprinted tees.  "Joyous Revolutionary" is a piece of art made for Lisa's current exhibit Hold It Lightly at Saint Mary's College Museum of Art, which honors Corita Kent's profound legacy and influence, along with messages of radical joy and hope.

Artist Ben Shahn once described his friend, the late pop artist Corita Kent, as a "joyous revolutionary". We encourage others to be joyous revolutionaries too! A portion of the proceeds from this design go to the Corita Art Center, a project which preserves and promotes Corita Kent's art, teaching and passion for social justice.

In partnership with Everpress, we created these tees as a fundraising campaign to release with the exhibition (see more details on that below).

This screenprinted tee is available now through September 28th, 2023. 

Screenprinted in the UK, drop shipped straight to you. Shipments begin mid October.

Exploring themes of joy, liberation, and radical inclusion, in her latest body of work Hold it Lightly for an exhibition at Saint Mary's College Museum of Art, Lisa Congdon creates digital drawings, which are then transformed into large, multi-color, layered serigraphs. Her work elevates mundane, simple shapes into discourse with symbols from her own life, nature and the supernatural in pared-down, unfussy, organized arrangements and graphic renderings. Through her iconic hand lettering, Congdon integrates messages into her work, which are both intentionally joyful and hopeful and, simultaneously, unabashedly outspoken and often subversive. 


Hold It Lightly is exhibited in conversation with legendary pop-artist Corita Kent's heroes and sheroes series, and Congdon's work reflects the profound personal impact of Kent's legacy on her work, process and pedagogy. Typically working in paint, Hold it Lightly represents the artist's first exhibit of printed matter. Congdon graduated from Saint Mary's College of California in 1990 with a Bachelor of Arts in History and is the first alumni to have a solo show at the museum.
