Site Projects Goes For Comic Relief

  A strip from Hubert's comic. Lucy Gellman Photos. A meteor has hit the New Haven Green. Rocks and grass are flying through the air; flames lick the space’s central fountain and flagpole. Smoke is everywhere. And any humans on site—stopping with their skateboards, running for their buses—are transforming into aliens by the second. They’ve got black, glassy eyes, green skin, and slimy tentacles erupting from their sides. Only one New Havener, a woman named Genesis, doesn’t seem to be affected. That’s not the latest news on the Green, but Kaleo Hubert’s vision for “Star Storm,” a new comic strip that puts New Haven front and center, and tells its story through a Black woman’s eyes. With 10 other high school students, Hubert is one of this year’s Public Art Fellows (PAF) with Site Projects, Inc., a nonprofit that supports and funds public art in New Haven. After working for six weeks weeks with graphic artists Rob Greenberg, Matt Stevens and Amie Ziner, all 11 fellows will have a final exhibition and reception this Sunday at the Ely Center of Contemporary Art. Festivities run from 2 to 6 p.m. and are free and open to the public. More information is available here.

A New Haven Tagger Spills His Secrets

For Troubledclef, the blank walls, untagged skateparks and underpasses didn’t call out immediately. Nor the cans of spray paint, waiting to be opened as they beckoned from convenience store aisles. Nor the sense of brethren-by-graffiti, a motley crew of artists and mischief-makers who would come out in the wee hours of the morning, and finish their work by 4 a.m.
