Sanctioned trailer art will continue for another year on East First Street. The Centre-fuge art project, a grassroots outdoor gallery co-founded by Pebbles Russell and Jon Neville, is about to open 2013 with a bang. And plenty of spray paint.

Cycle 7 will make its debut on February 8. Artist roster for this “changing art box” includes Hellbent, Joe Iurato, Joseph Meloy, Matthew Denton Burrows, Nicholai Khan, and and Yuki.

Centre-fuge began life in February 2012 as a memorial to Lower East Side neighbor Mike Hamm, and has quickly become a favorite on the block. The same could not be said of the drab DOT trailer on which the art is displayed.

Bonus – below is a brief interview with Pebbles and Jon, conducted by the Lower Eastside Girls Club a couple weeks ago.

The DOT Not Seeing the Light with Traffic Signals at Bowery and Delancey

The city spent loads of taxpayer dollars the last few years trying to remedy the traffic situation at the intersection of Bowery and Delancey/Kenmare. Road crews keep digging up pavement, repainting the lanes, and beautifying the medians. To no avail. The bigger issue continually shrugged aside is fixing the sequence timing of the signals here.
