Guerilla art! Communists! A bowling poet!...?
Uncover clues from various WLA collections that tell the stories of Mollie West (Chicago labor leader, women’s right activist, and one-time Communist Party member), SisterSerpents (Chicago feminist art collective that made political statements through art), and Eleanor Risteen Gordon (professor, poet, and bowling enthusiast).
