The Corita exhibit features works from the University’s fine arts collection. Under the direction of Corita Kent and Sister Magdalen Mary Martin, students in the 1950s and 1960s at Immaculate Heart College in Pasadena, California created the works of art showcased in this exhibit. Visitors will notice the strong themes of social justice, art activism, and Catholic identity in these works of art.
“Anyone who invests time and attention in this exhibition will go away with a greater awareness of how to look at art, nature, and the world around them,” says Daniels. She encourages visitors to “silence their smart phones, put them aside and ‘look at this, and look again...’ you will be amazed at what you see!”
There will be an opening reception for both exhibits, Saturday February 6, 6–8 p.m. in the Catherine G. Murphy Gallery. Both receptions are free and open to the public.
Monday through Friday, 8 a.m.–8 p.m.; Saturday and Sunday, 12 p.m.–6 p.m.
