Blackwing's Volumes packs are released quarterly and feature limited edition pencils that celebrate the people, places and events that have defined our creative culture over time.
The Blackwing 93 is a tribute to Corita Kent and her message to slow down and find gratitude in the everyday. Kent was an educator, artist, and social justice advocate who believed that art could be a tool for dialogue, reflection, and change. Each pencil features one of the six colorful brushstrokes that make up Corita’s iconic rainbow swash. Commissioned in 1971, the rainbow swash adorns a 140-foot-tall natural gas storage tank along Interstate 93 in Dorchester, Massachusetts.
The pencils contain Blackwing's soft graphite and each set includes two of each color design.
5% of the proceeds from this pencil will support continued work in art education through the Corita Art Center.
