New York City: Street Art - Centre-Fuge/Cycle 9

(Drivebycuriosity) - New York City would be way less glamorous without the work of her ubiquitous street artist. One of the most fascinating sat groups is the Centre-Fuge Public Art Project (centre-fuge). I have been reporting about this collective of street artists several times (driveby).

You can spot now their newest project, which the call "Cycle 9". They had invited a group of artists to present their different styles and ideas.

As in the former cycles they used a trailer on East First Street - a satellite office for Second Avenue Subway workers - at First Street East which goes east-west between Bowery and First Avenue along Houston Street East (between the East Village and Lower East Side). You could see more art works on a wall in the "First Park", a tiny playground on East First Street and First Avenue. There also are some installations.

According to their website the new cycle is shown from July through September 2013. They have already collected ideas and artists for their forthcoming "Cycle 10". I am looking forward to it.
