All weekend long, the gaggle of graffiti artists labored to complete commissioned murals on the facades of the mid-block trailer that is Centre-Fuge. It basically became one big hangout of skaters and creative types. Plenty of cameras and picture-taking, too. The artwork in this third cycle of the nascent program is just as stellar as its predecessor, if not better.

Fumero decked out half the southern exposure with an awesome Sharpie surfer; Danielle Mastrion painted the finishing touches on the Beastie Boys tribute; and our favorite, the skeleton family of East First by Michael DeNicola. After all, this is the nexus of the universe (1st and 1st).

We even hear that Mike D was coincidentally at the Juice Press Friday afternoon, and was shown the mural on his way out.
