TRAC was hired to complete renovations to Brown University’s Center for the Study of Slavery and Justice located at 94 Waterman Street, Providence.  Built in 1860 and formerly an Alumnae Hall, TRAC working with LLB Architects completely remodeled the interior of the building into a gallery space and research center.  The first floor includes a glass wall art piece titled “Rising to Freedom” that depicts movement from slavery to forms of freedom through a series of iconic images.  The additional gallery space will display both research and art. Outside the building, a garden designed by Geri Augusto features a stone cosmogram, a stone bench of contemplation, a bottle tree and a grassy flowered terrace.
