Introducing our “From the Archives” series, where we take a peek inside the archives at the Corita Art Center to share a lesser-known piece by Corita Kent.

This first installment features Olivian Cha, our Curator and Collections Manager, uncovering a poster commissioned by the Poor People’s Campaign in 1968 for their March on Washington. Olivian notes Corita’s frequent use of newspaper clippings in her work, and how it illustrates her understanding of the media’s growing impact on society.
