Corita's rise to fame came as a teacher (and eventual director) of the Immaculate Heart College Art Department. Until 1968, she was a Sister in the Order of the Immaculate Heart of Mary, but that summer she left the College, the Order and Los Angeles. Corita settled in Boston. She continued to sell art through the Vineland shop mentioned, but after her death in 1986, her collection went to her former sisters of the Immaculate Heart Community. The gallery is located on the campus of Immaculate Heart High School (NW corner Franklin and Western in Hollywood). We have prints for viewing and sale, we facilitate outside exhibitions (such as the one currently on view at the Los Angeles Cathedral) we have an archive of ephemera for scholarship and we are welcome visitors of all sorts.
