Dame of the Day: Corita Kent

Corita Kent

Today’s Dame of the Day is Corita Kent (November 20, 1918 – September 18, 1986). Kent joined the Roman Catholic order of Sisters of the Immaculate Heart of Mary when she was 18, but she continued to take art classes and earn her bachelor’s degree. Even after she left the order in 1968, she continued to teach and make art. In 1985, her design was featured as the United Postal Service’s annual “Love” stamp. She also created the Rainbow Swash splayed across a gas tank in Dorchester, Massachusetts.
