Centre-fuge Announces Cycle 7 Artists for Trailer Murals

Posted on: January 30th, 2013 at 6:18 am by


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.
