Today marks what would have been the 96th birthday of Corita Kent, an artist whose work was known for its bold, colorful images spreading messages of love, peace and social justice.

To pay tribute, Google has marked Kent’s birthday with a Google logo mirroring her style and form.

Kent began her career as a catholic nun, taking the name Sister Mary Corita and leading the art department at the Immaculate Heart College in California. Her career spans over more than thirty years and includes iconic pieces like the 1971 “Rainbow Swash” on the Dorchester, Massachusetts gas tanks near Boston, along with the United States Post Office’s 1985 official “Love” stamp.

The Tang Museum at Skidmore College, which hosts the “Someday is Now: The Art of Corita Kent” exhibition, defines Kent’s work as iconic symbols of a turbulent time.

Throughout her rich and varied career, she made thousands of posters, murals, and signature serigraphs that combine her passions for faith and politics.

In 1968, Kent left the order, continuing her work as a graphic artist in Boston. Kent died in 1986 at the age of 68 after losing her battle with cancer.
