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