    Ramón Coronado and Marshall Rake met as design students at Art Center College of Design in Pasadena. After studying, working, and exhibiting independently for many years—both stateside and internationally—their design philosophy and approach brought them back together as Public-Library in 2011.

Corita Kent focused on the importance of love, respect, and dignity for everyone throughout her career as an artist and a teacher. Her style and subject matter shifted with the political climate of the day and her relationship with the church, but this underlying current remained. This exhibition includes a selection of work that reflects her ethical outlook and her inherent optimism about life. Using Corita Kent's teaching techniques of looking and systematic assignments, the One Over One Printmaking class at Otis College of Art and Design has selected a sampling of Corita's work to present alongside art they have produced in response to Kent's images and to the politics of our everyday lives.

One Over One Printmaking was a Communication Arts studio class offered at Otis in Fall 2011 and taught by faculty member and artist Nancy Jo Haselbacher. The student work presented in this exhibition was made by Liesel PlambeckAndrew RahnMeghan Riley and Dan Zins. Thank you to Sasha Carrera, Director, www.corita.org.
