Centre-fuge Cycle 18, October 2015

​The Centre-fuge trailer on East First Street is ready for its springtime paint job. Cycle 20 of the popular art project is on its way, and should debut May 1.

Artists represented in the next round of artwork are Adam Dare, Balu, Claw Money, K-nor, Resa,Rob Plater & Werc. Cycle 20 will be on view through late July.

Now in its fourth year of existence, Centre-fuge forges ahead. Despite the departure of co-founder Pebbles Russell last month. Co-founder Jon Neville is now the big cheese, so to speak.

At the crux, Centre-fuge was a “need-based” endeavor inspired by their neighbor and friend Mike Hamm, co-founder Jonathan Neville previously explained. The Department of Transportation mobile trailer had been placed directly in front of First Park in summer 2011 as a forward office in the rehab of East Houston and preparations for the Second Avenue subway. Its residence was initially set at three to five years, which upset the balance of the block. Their goal is to beautify the blight.
