It started as a collaboration between two Tacoma artists who created a series of colorful broadsides featuring quotes by historical feminists tied to current political and social issues. The letterpress poster series was so successful that O’Leary and Spring created Dead Feminists, Historic Heroines in Living Color, a 2018 Pacific Northwest Award winning book using the original broadsides with archival photos and ephemera to describe the accomplishments of women like Eleanor Roosevelt, Rachel Carson, Harriet Tubman and Shirley Chisholm, with an inspiring foreword by writer Jill Lepore. Join us as they tell the story of this extraordinary collaboration, which continues to provide hope and inspiration through challenging times.
