come alive!

inspired by this great poster on hi+low (another favorite blog for visual inspiration), i started reading a profile of the artist Sister Corita, an LA/Boston nun-turned-artist who spent thirty years teaching & publishing her art across the country.

she was the artist behind the 1985 Love stamp and, before that, the south boston gas tank (above), which i've driven by a million times (always pointing out the infamous hidden face!)--but never learned its history.

her art seems to be an awesome mix of mid-century pop culture & spirituality.

the Corita Art Center is here in LA and now added to my explore-the-city list.

her art bio is out there just waiting to inspire: come alive!
