Throughout her life, Corita took on a wide variety of commissions, including this one for “American Desk Manufacturing,” which used her serigraph, “god is blue” for the cover of their 1963 magazine.

“If a man does not keep pace with his companions perhaps it is because he hears a different drummer. Let him step to the music which he hears however measured or far away.”

Corita’s 1967 serigraph, “wet and wild,” inspired by a 1966 advertisement for 7-up. Here, Corita’s creative process involved manipulating text by hand and rephotographing it to create a new stencil for her work.

We love “Le Refuge” from Milan Design Week. Can’t you just see this in SoCal?! Palm Springs maybe? #LeRefuge #marcange

“Wouldn’t you go jail if it would help end the war?”

In 1971, Corita created this series of prints for the Daniel Ellsberg Defense. Ellsberg’s quote was in response to charges of theft and conspiracy after leaking a top-secret study, known as the Pentagon Papers, to the New York Times.
