Corita Kent was born in Fort Dodge, Iowa. She was an American graphic Designer and an educator who worked in Los Angeles and Boston. She worked almost exclusively with silkscreen, or serigraphy, helping to establish it as a fine art medium. Her artwork, with its messages of love and peace, was particularly popular during the social upheavals of the 1960s and 1970s. Kent designed the 1985 United States Postal Service's annual "love" stamp. She earned her BA from Immaculate Heart College in 1941. She earned her MA at the University of Southern California in Art History in 1951. Kent created several hundred serigraph designs for posters, book covers, and murals. Her work includes the 1985 Love Stamp and Rainbow Swash, the 150-foot-high natural gas tank in the Dorchester neighborhood of Boston.
