Donohue Rare Book Room Hosts Corita Kent Presentation

Sr. Corita - Love On March 6th the Donohue Rare Book Room hosted a Thacher Gallery talk that coincided with the opening of “Power Up: Serigraphs by Corita Kent.” The talk included a presentation by Sasha Carrera of the Corita Art Center, as well as presentations by Professors Amy Franceschini and Stuart McKee of the University’s Visual Arts Department. The program was attended by over fifty students, faculty and guests of the University. Also in attendance were several former students of Sr. Corita who shared with the audience their reminiscences of working with her and how she encouraged her students to see their subjects from as many perspectives as possible. After a spirited question and answer period, the program adjourned to the Thacher Gallery where a wonderful opening reception ensued. The exhibition will continue through April 20.
