The Triangle Shirtwaist Factory Fire: Art, Action, and Remembering
Tuesday, March 28 • 7:00 pm • Auditorium
Register using code HMA713
In 1911, a fire at the Triangle Shirtwaist Factory in New York City took the lives of 146 workers, most of them young immigrant women and girls. Their deaths galvanized a movement for social and economic justice then, but today’s laborers continue to battle dire working conditions. How can we bring the lessons of the Triangle fire back into practice today? For artist Ruth Sergel, the answer was to fuse art, activism, and collective memory to create a large-scale public commemoration that invites broad participation and incites civic engagement. Ruth Sergel's book will be on sale after the program with a portion of proceeds going to the Friends of Huntington Public Library. Read more about Ruth Sergel at https://cityroom.blogs.nytimes.com/2011/03/19/in-a-tragedy-a-mission-to-remember/?_r=2   Registration required. Open to all.
