And for the whole background ... from the EV Grieve inbox...
Centre-fuge Public Art Project is proud to present Cycle 2, the second installation of art on the rotating outdoor gallery at First Street and First Avenue.
In mid-2011 a drab, gray trailer, serving as a temporary office for workers on the 2nd Avenue subway line, popped up on the South side of First Street. For one year Centre-fuge Public Art Project transforms the trailer into a rotating street gallery. Up to seven artists at a time create work on all visible sides of the structure with the art changing every other month.
The goal of Centre-fuge is not only to re-beautify this incredible block, but also to encourage the community to express itself in a public forum. With the closure of half of Houston Street, making underground way for the 2nd Avenue Subway line, the ever-growing presence of construction makes the block feel less like a neighborhood full of individuals and more like a work site full of barricades and jackhammers. The project is dedicated in memory of friend, creator and Lower East Side neighbor, Mike Hamm.
Artists represented in Cycle 2 of Centre-fuge are Claw Money, Eiknarf, John P. Dessereau, Julius Klein, Kenny Rodriguez and Yuri Velez, with a collaborative piece by Mastro and Ben Angotti. Centre-fuge is brought to you by founders Pebbles Russell and Jonathan Neville.
