Open Call for Muralists to Decorate First Street Green Art Park
Centre-fuge, whose popular art trailer was deposed last summer after seven years, is seeking muralists to paint part of the First Street Green Art Park. The group put out the official request for proposals yesterday morning.
There are seven fence-canvases available for the taking. Artwork is curated on a rotating basis, so this next batch will remain in place for two to three months.
Submit proposals here. Submission deadline is June 3.
First Street Green was founded in 2008 when neighbors converted the derelict building lot at 33 East 1st Street into an open-air gallery. The space was later incorporated into First Park down the block. Centre-fuge Public Art Project director Jonathan Neville – who currently assists in curating the art park – helped the organization kickstart its mural programming (“Influx in Flux”) back in 2013 as part of the New Museum’s Ideas City Festival that year.
