Centre-Fuge Art Project Crowdfunding for Expansion
Since its inception last year, Centre-fuge has quickly become a local attraction for its rotating selection of street art. With the blessing of the city, the non-profit organization paints the mid-block trailer once every few months, breathing new life into East First Street.
Now co-founders Pebbles Russell and Jonathan Neville are seeking funds to help expand the program by “acquiring more rotating mural locations as well as facilitating murals for individuals and businesses.” To accomplish this goal, the duo recently launched a crowdfunding campaign via Indiegogo to raise $10,000 in 60 days. So if you support the cause, toss some change into the bucket.
Here’s a snippet from the pitch:
The past inaugural year has been an amazing one. Centre-fuge has worked with a myriad of talented artists and completed 7 cycles of murals on the popup office trailer on East 1st Street. We would like to thank each and every one of you for your support and participation. Without you, this idea could never have become a reality. From coming out for installations in the August heat and February freeze, to helping us raise necessary funds at our two small fundraisers on the block; without your input, contributions, attention and support Centre-fuge would be a shadow of itself and far off the path you have helped it blaze.
This year, Centre-fuge will focus on realizing the abundance of opportunities throughout the city. We plan on acquiring more rotating mural locations as well as facilitating murals for individuals and businesses. This means we need to build the proper team to make Centre-fuge the best it can be. We will be making Centre-fuge memorabilia and collectibles, like t-shirts and hand painted model trailers, created by past Centre-fuge participants. These items will all be sold online and in local stores. We are also going to be participating in art festivals and fairs, with booths at local block parties.
