Art in focus: ‘R(ad)ical Love: Sister Mary Corita’ plays with words at the National Museum of Women in the Arts


View Photo Gallery: Artist and nun Sister Mary Corita plays with words at the National Museum of Women in the Arts.

Sixty-five beautifully preserved silkscreen prints from the 1960s — as bold and as brilliantly colored as rock posters — are on view at the National Museum of Women in the Arts. The small show, titled “R(ad)ical Love: Sister Mary Corita,” spotlights the work of a Roman Catholic nun known for her innovative appropriation and repurposing of advertising slogans into messages of progressive spirituality.

Read my review, and check out a selection of images from the show in the gallery at the top of this post.

Born and raised in Washington, D.C., Michael O’Sullivan has worked since 1993 at The Washington Post, where he covers art, film and other forms of popular — and unpopular — culture.
