Corporate Art Renovates Historic Bldg.

| July 25, 2017

Providence, RI – Corporate Art Group Inc. has renovated a historic building located in the heart of the Providence Jewelry District. Reborn into 95 Lofts, it is now a modern living experience that includes exposed brick, original hardwood floors, natural light, and incredible views.

Built in 1904, the six-story Irons & Russell Building housed a pin and charm manufacturer. For 95 Lofts, connecting with local history was imperative to paying homage to the Providence Jewelry District that is still in existence today.

A custom art and design package was created that included framed art on canvas, three-dimensional metal signage, and a wall mural. Corporate Art Group Inc. researched and sourced historic photographs of local jewelry manufacturers as well as advertisements that ran in vintage jeweler magazines such as the “The Jewelers Circular.

Graffiti art

In combination with the historic artwork, the corridors are graced with local graffiti art as well as a graffiti wall mural that presents a different type of art expression.

Alisha Capobianco, the historic researcher at Corporate Art Group Inc., has sourced photographs in more than 100 cities and towns across the nation, working with various sources to trace back the culture and history of buildings and streets. The photographs are digitally restored, when necessary, printed in-house to various substrates, custom-framed, or printed on vinyl to full-size wall murals. Her research is combined with design to specifically pair these historic photographs together when installed for display.
