The Centre-Fuge Public Art Project
Several blocks down from the Bowery Wall there’s another rotating art space that is being transformed quarterly, “The Centre-Fuge Art Project” is transforming a dull grey work trailer into a work of art right on Houston and 1st Street in L.E.S. Pebbles Russell and Jonathan Neville are presenting this project in memory of friend, creator and Lower East Side neighbor, Mike Hamm. The trailer will be painted once every two months. Artists must submit proposals in order for their work to be deemed appropriate for the broader community and the artists will supply their own materials. Below is the second go around of the ongoing project featuring artists Claw Money, Kenny Rodriguez, Yuri Velez, Julius Klein, Eiknarf, Ben Angotti, and Mastro. Scroll through the gallery above to check out the flicks.
“Throughout the year, various fundraising events will support the project. The third cycle of Centre-fuge will see the start of an application process, so that anyone can propose an idea for work on the trailer. The final cycle (installed November 10-11) will include work from any previous artist on the project, members of the Lower East Side Girls Club and other local youth, art, and community groups, schools and organizations. A small event will be held on the block that weekend.”
