The Corita Art Center is just a short drive to LA
Did you happen to see the Corita Kent art exhibit “Be the Change: The Corita Experience“? It was here in San Pedro, September 2015.
Be the Change: The Corita Experience, surveys the reflective works of legendary artist, activist, and educator – Sister Corita Kent. For several years Sister Corita dedicated herself to teaching and creating a body of work that advocated profound messages of peace, spirituality, social justice and the celebration of life. Amidst a turbulent era in American history plagued by war, racism, and opposition, she was able to leave behind a message of hope. Each of the pieces on display, come together to reveal the power of art as an instrument for change, in order to inspire us all to be the change.
