Earth Day "Happening"
OFF-SITE EVENT @ Corita Art Center
Corita's festive, participatory, highly-choreographed "Happenings" succeeded in breaking down barriers, encouraging creativity, and fostering a sense of community. In honor of Earth Day, the Corita Art Center presents a Corita-style "Happening" warm-up—followed by an earth-centric art lesson by former student, artist, and master teacher, Laurine DiRocco, hosted on the very grounds where Corita taught.

Part of a series of events leading up to the exhibition Someday is Now: The Art of Corita Kent—a full-scale survey of work by the innovative artist, activist, and teacher—opening in June 2015
