Triangle Fire Open Museum
There's an exhibit on the Triangle Fire at the NYU Open House Gallery, 528 La Guardia Place (between W. 3rd St. and Bleecker), throughout the coming weekend. Hours are: Thurs., 2-7 pm; Friday, 12-5 pm; Sat/Sun:1-4 pm. The show includes articles, documents, and other material from the coalition's Open Archive, and will be a great source of ideas and images for our quilt project. The reception/benefit is tomorrow (March 23) from 4:30-7:00, with light refreshments, wine, and entertainment. The benefit is part of our campaign for the building of a permanent memorial; since we are a coalition of artists, writers, teachers, union folk, historians, descendants of victims, and students, the requested donation is $20.00, at the door. Everyone is welcome to this---it would be a terrific way to catch the flavor of the coalition and to get a broader perspective on our purpose.
