New Rules Next Week - Corita Kent's Legacy through the Eyes of Twenty Artists and Writers


Lisa was invited to be one of twenty contemporary artists and writers to reimagine Corita Kent's iconic creative manifesto.

From the publisher: Known for her vibrant and powerful serigraphs, Corita Kent left an equally important legacy through her teaching. In the late 1960s, she and her students at the Immaculate Heart College developed their Art Department Rules. From Consider everything an experiment"" to ""Be happy whenever you can manage it,"" these ten deceptively simple principles capture the magic of Corita's approach to creativity, culture, and activism. In this volume, ten writers and ten artists look back at the rules and show us how vital and resonant they remain today.

"Corita Kent (1918-1986) was a former Roman Catholic nun who became a 1960s pop art legend. She headed the art department at the Immaculate Heart College, where she created her 10 Art Department Rules. In 1968, she left the order and moved to Boston to focus exclusively on her art. She remained in Boston until her death in 1986, leaving behind almost 800 serigraph editions, thousands of watercolors, and innumerable public and private commissions. Her work has been shown at major museums across the country, including the Whitney, the Metropolitan Museum of Art, and the San Francisco Museum of Modern Art. In 2016 she received the American Institute of Graphic Arts Medal.”
