Los Angeles City Councilman Mitch O’Farrell recently announced that the City Council voted on June 2 to designate the Corita Kent Studio in Hollywood as a historic-cultural monument.
The designation of the Corita Kent Studio, located at 5518 Franklin Ave., acknowledges Kent’s important legacy in Los Angeles and elevates the stories of female artists, O’Farrell said. The site was designated for its association with the famed artist, educator and social justice advocate.
“This designation not only acknowledges Corita’s important legacy in Los Angeles, it elevates the stories of female artists, whose contributions have too often gone unsung,” O’Farrell said. “Corita Kent was a champion for women’s rights, equity and social justice, and the impact of her body of artistic work continues to loom large in Los Angeles and beyond.”
