We’ve been working away producing a dozen new short videos about astonishing women. We have big plans for 2017 and in fact we’ve got some pretty exciting events unfolding in the coming weeks. Today we’re posting the first of this series with our lead editor Farrel Levy telling us about Sister Mary Corita Kent—an inspired visual artist with a knack for finding meaning and joy in unlikely places.
Levy tells the story of visual artist Corita Kent, a Catholic nun whose commitment to social justice, combined with an open mind and a sense of humor, led her to create vibrant serigraphs merging American ad campaigns, pop culture and quotes from the world’s religions, to create startlingly moving art that is still relevant today.
With our backyard video project, Look What She Did! we are creating an ongoing archive of short videos celebrating crazy-great women as told to us by… crazy-great women. All of us working on this project are having a blast and are fired up about sharing these inspiring stories with you. Take a look at our social media and let us know… Who is YOUR astonishing woman?
