Jeez, time flies. Summer’s over. And we’re already bringing news of the fifth cycle in the popular Centre-fuge art project. The penultimate paint job, if you will.

As in the past, a rag-tag crew of local artists will convene at the once drab DOT trailer on East First Street to add some much-needed personality. These “outdoor gallery” events always draw a crowd – graffiti in broad daylight. Cycle 5 kicks off September 20 and runs through mid-November, at which point all previous Centre-fuge artists will return for one large collaborative piece.

The installation coincides with the First Street Block Party and James Day, a fundraiser for 2-year-old neighbor James Panitz, who was diagnosed with cancer this past spring. Cycle 5 artists include ND’A, See One, and Icy & Sot, with collaborative pieces by Chris RWK and Veng, Cost and Enx, and Billy Mode, Jose-Aurelio Baez and Noid-One.
