Centre-fuge Public Art Project Kicks off 23rd Cycle on East 1st Street Trailer
It’s been nearly five months, and now the Centre-fuge Public Art Project returns with another round of artwork.
Painting commenced this weekend, thus kicking off Cycle 23 at the decrepit East First Street trailer.
Current class of creatives includes Evan Paul English, Gongkan, Lexi Bella, Cekis, and Ces.
The Cycle 23 art installation also includes the colorful decoration of those stubborn containers parked further east by Avenue A.
The Department of Transportation mobile trailer was first placed directly in front of First Park six summers ago 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. The goal of Centre-fuge, co-founded by Jon Neville and Pebbles Russell in February 2012, is to beautify the blight while remembering its inspiration (late artist Mike Hamm).
