Founded in 1997, Corita Art Center, a project of the Immaculate Heart Community, preserves and promotes Corita Kent’s art, teaching, and passion for social justice. Today, Corita Art Center supports exhibition loans and public programs, oversees image and merchandising rights, sells Corita’s original prints, and serves as a resource and archive on her life and work.
Corita Art Center lends works from its collection to museums, galleries, and other exhibition spaces, both locally and internationally. Upon approval of a loan, exhibitors are required to cover cost of transportation both ways, framing, installation, and insurance. Exhibition fees may also apply. Feel free to contact us with any additional questions.
Corita Art Center, a project of Immaculate Heart Community, holds the copyrights in all works by Corita Kent, excluding some commissions. The right to reproduce any of Kent’s work in print, electronically or in any other existing media must be cleared the Corita Art Center or its agents. All image requests for publication, scholarship and non-product-based commercial use should contact Artist Rights Society (ARS).
Rooted in one of the most diverse cities in the world, Corita Art Center is committed to building pathways for the multitude of voices represented in the local and broader communities we serve. As an organization centered on a female artist who championed diversity, equity, and inclusion through art, education, and social justice advocacy we are committed to championing policies and practices that empower a just, inclusive, and equitable environment within our organization and more broadly, through our public programming.
At our core, we believe that art and arts education are powerful platforms for social change. Recognizing that Corita Art Center engages in the legacy and interpretation of a single individual, we seek to preserve and promote Corita’s life and work by actively supporting a wide breadth of arts programs, exhibitions, and scholarship that cultivate open dialogue and diverse perspectives.
