Definitely one of our most unique gift shop items! Boston Gas Tank paperweights are back in stock. Corita designed the rainbow tank in 1971. In the 90s, the original tank was demolished and her work relocated to another. The paint chips in these lucite cubes are from the original tank! Get yours today! Link in profile.

Happy birthday to Walt Whitman, born this day in 1819. The American poet and essayist is featured in this detail of Corita’s serigraph “road signs,” from 1969.

“Not I nor anyone else can travel that road for you, you must travel it yourself. It is not far, it is within reach. Perhaps you have been on it since you were born and did not know. Perhaps it is everywhere on water and on land…if you tire, give me both burdens, and rest the cuff of your hand on my hip. And in due time you shall repay the same service to me, for after we start we never lie by again…
