Centre-fuge Completes “Cycle 6” Artwork [PHOTOS]

Posted on: December 3rd, 2012 at 6:18 am by

Cycle 6 of Centre-fuge artwork is now under the proverbial belt. Since last Thursday, a gaggle of street artist participants from previous installations here had been busy skinning the trailer in fresh paint. We stopped by yesterday afternoon to assess progress, and as usual, it felt like an old school block party. Mastro supplied a steady stream of fresh beats; bottles of paint littered the ground; neighbors checked in to say hi.

This latest round of creativity is a celebration of the last year in Centre-fuge. What began as a simple project to beautify an otherwise drab mid-block trailer on East First Street has become an alternative center in the street art community. The canvas was barely large enough to house all the returning creatives. Some cool shit, besides. There are plans to expand the program well into 2013 with some surprises along the way. Be sure to stay tuned!

We rarely saw anyone grazing in there, but business persevered nevertheless. The end came yesterday evening. Pomme’s last communication occurred via Facebook at around 4pm. Shortly thereafter, […]

‘The Hunt’ Antique Shop Opens at New Canal Street Location Next Week

Optimum Appliances relocated down the block a few years ago, leaving valuable retail real estate for the taking. Only, it didn’t actually happen that quickly. Quite the opposite; the former electronics store at 27 Canal Street remained vacant until this summer. As we first reported last month, upscale antique purveyor, The Hunt, is busy building […]

That Essex Market ‘Street Seat’ Won’t be Happening this Year

Woes at Essex Street Market continue. The 75-year-old facility is still suffering from lack of foot traffic and an overall visibility problem, thanks in large part to confusion over Essex Crossing. (Site 2 will include real estate for the new market.) Initial messaging from developers seemed to weave a narrative that the market was closed. […]
