The Centre-fuge rotating art project just reached the midpoint of its life here on the Lower East Side. Launched in January of this year by co-founders Pebbles Russell and Jonathan Neville, the trailer of colorful murals continues its role as beacon of street art here on East First Street.

We now learn that Cycle 3 will give way to the fourth installment in roughly two weeks. So be sure to snap some final shots of the awesome art while it’s still intact – our faves are Fumero’s Sharpie surfer,  Danielle Mastrion’s Beastie Boys tribute, and the skeleton family of East First by Michael DeNicola.

Centre-fuge is dedicated to the memory of friend, creator, and Lower East Side neighbor, Mike Hamm.
