TRIANGLE FIRE MEMORIAL QUILT on Display at The Evergreens Cemetery

March 1 - April 11

LaborArts_020513_0005The Evergreens Cemetery will host an exhibition on the Triangle Fire Memorial Quilt, marking the 107th anniversary of the Triangle Shirtwaist Factory fire. Robin Berson, a boardmember with the Remember the Triangle Fire Coalition, has painstakingly created a poignant memorial quilt as a way to keep alive the memories of these workers as well as the fire’s legacy of reform.

The quilt will be on display in the office lobby; follow the signs from the Bushwick Avenue entrance. The office is open Monday to Friday 8:30 a.m. to 4:00 p.m. and Saturday 9:00 a.m. to 1:00 p.m. 

On March 23rd at 2:30 PM there will be a wreath-laying ceremony at the cemetery’s Triangle Fire Memorial to the Unknowns.
