LABOR ART OF THE WEEK: Remembering Triangle families

Chris Garlock | Published on 3/29/2024
Remembering Triangle families. This portrait of two young women who died in the Triangle Factory Fire on March 25, 1911 — sisters Lucia Maltese (age 20) and Rosarea Maltese (age 14)—is carried by family members at the 100th anniversary of the Triangle Factory Fire in 2011. Fluttering shirtwaist banners for each of the 146 victims were created by artists in the Remember the Triangle Fire Coalition. The image is from the exhibit Memory in Cloth: Safety and Solidarity for New York City Garment Workers, originally at NYU's Tamiment Library, now online on LaborArts.
