Martin Puryear at Brown University

As part of Brown University's 250th anniversary, Martin Puryear created the sculpture Slavery Memorial in recognition of Brown University's connection to the trans-Atlantic slave trade and the role of African-Americans in the building of the university. The memorial is sited on the front campus near University Hall.
