Exhibition ‘Collective Ribbon’ courtesy NYU Casa Italiana Zerilli-Mmarimo. Remember the Triangle Fire Coalition. The public was invited  to collectively create a 300 foot long ribbon, formed together from individual pieces of fabric, donated by the participants. This ribbon’s patterns and textures will be etched to the steel body of the permanent memorial and the stories of the participants will be archived at the Kheel Center at Cornell University. The images and videos below were taken at FIT on March 16 and 17 2019, when hundreds of volunteers gathered to sew together parts of the ribbon.

An exhibition presented by NYU Casa Italiana Zerilli-Marimò and Remember the Triangle Fire Coalition will be on view from October 9 to December 15th, curated by Richard Joon Yoko and Uri Wegman, Co-designers of the Triangle Fire Memorial.
