Artwork description

Drawn in Smoke is a project created by conceptual artist Harriet Bart to commemorate the centennial of the Triangle Shirtwaist Factory fire of 1911. Historically important for the changes in labor practices it galvanized, this tragedy claimed the lives of 160 victims, most of them young immigrant women and girls. An important work in Bart’s oeuvreDrawn in Smoke continues the artist’s practice memorializing the sacrifices of those who often go unrecognized. Working with a list of the victims held at the Cornell University Archive, Bart used smoke to create an original abstract “portrait” for each person whose name is on the list.  She then wrote one name under each smoke drawing.

A copy of this work is currently on display at the Maier Art Museum at Randolph University in Lynchburg, Virginia.

The work is signed by the artist on the colophon.
