Centre-fuge Collaborates with First Street Green for New Plywood Murals

The fruitful collaboration between the Centre-fuge Public Art Project and First Street Green continues this week with some new artwork. Weather held out long enough for two street artists to decorate the unsightly plywood in the woods behind the main space.
Centre-fuge is currently between cycles at its East First Street trailer, so project organizers are keeping busy. Whether that means painting concrete containers (i.e. graffiti time capsules) or piping along East Houston Street or this particular fence. Brazilian-based artists Panmela Castro and OPNI were both tapped for the new murals.
First Street Green was founded in 2008 when locals converted the derelict building lot at 33 East 1st Street into an open-air gallery. It was later incorporated into First Park down the block.
