The once-abandoned trailer on East First Street off First Avenue in Manhattan has been transformed once again.  With assistance from the young members of Cre8tive YouTH*ink, a creative arts youth development organization, it currently showcases a vibrant mix of styles from over 20 artists who had participated in the Centre-Fuge Public Art Project‘s first five cycles. The following images were captured these past four days:
