Ivy Bottini is a feminist, actor, artist and activist. She’s probably best known for designing the logo for the National Organization for Women, or NOW. And now, she’s the subject of a new original play called InclusIVitY: The Ivy Bottini Story.

Eccentric socialite Peggy Guggenheim [GOO-gen-hym] had an affair with Samuel Beckett, smuggled art out of Nazi Germany, and introduced Jackson Pollock to the American art scene. A new play about Guggenheim begins its tour with Central Coast performances featuring Cal Poly students and alumni. Marisa Waddell talks with play’s creator, Cal Poly professor Al Schnupp.
