The nearly two-year-old Centre-fuge public art project just announced the eleventh and final cycle for 2013. This latest round of open-air street art on East First Street will be a group show of sorts. Seventeen of the twenty-eight participants from this year’s class were invited back to create a massive collaborative piece for the mid-block DOT trailer. Cake, Caroline Caldwell, Cassie Lynn O’Neal, CS-Navarrete, Damien Miksza, Damien Mitchell, Demer, ELLE, Joseph Meloy, Nicholai Khan, Nicole Salgar, Matthew Denton Burrows, Miishab, Mor, Phetus, Roycer and Yuki are all involved.

Painting for Cycle 11 commences on November 21, and once complete, will remain on display until January 23, 2014.

In other good news, the Centre-fuge “contract” was renewed for another year. That equates to six additional cycles. This should come as no surprise, since nearly everyone in the neighborhood, including DOT, are happy with the outcome of this project.
