Centre-Fuge Public Art Project — Cycle 7 in Progress

February 14, 2013

Joseph Meloy & Nicholai Khan

East First Street near First Avenue in the East Village/Lower East Side is the place to be this week as the Centre-fuge Public Art Project begins its second year of transforming a once-abandoned trailer into a showcase of urban art. These images of works-in-progress were captured yesterday:

The wonderfully talented Joe Iurato will be on board tomorrow.  StreetArtNYC will feature images of the completed trailer next week.

The Centre-Fuge Public Art Project was conceived in 2011 by First Street residents Pebbles Russell and Jonathan Neville in memory of their friend, Mike Hamm.
