It’s about that time again – the arrival of new paintwork at Centre-fuge on East First Street. Cycle 8 has just been announced, and is set to boast murals by Collin Scotese, Cruz, Demer, Elle, Mor, and Turtle Caps. But this particular installment in the popular series carries with it an asterisk due to a simultaneous partnership with the New Museum for its Ideas City Festival. It’s called “Influx in Flux.”

The joint venture with the New Museum includes decorating four additional semi-permanent construction containers across from 94 East First Street. Each will be treated in the same manner as the OG mid-block trailer, courtesy of past participants N’DA, Yuri Velez, Cram Concepts and Claw Money.

To complete the Centre-fuge tri-fecta, First Street Green Park will itself receive some love. From May 1-4, Sheryo & the Yok, Ray Smith & Sofia Maldonado and the young artists from Cre8tive YouTH*ink will put their mark.
