The Lower East Side Partnership is bringing the 100 Gates Project to the East Village.
Here's the pitch:
Interested artists will be paired up with like-minded businesses for these site-specific mural collaborations that will be installed on exterior roll-down security gates. Artists are paid a supply and artist stipend of $400 for each gate installation and the project comes at zero cost to merchants.
EV merchants can email this account to apply for a gate revamp. (And artists can apply to work on a gate at this link.)
The 100 Gates project started on the Lower East Side in 2014 ... and eventually expanded to Harlem and Staten Island.
The 100th gate was completed (by LAmour Supreme) on the LES in September 2016... over at Katz's (this photo is from last year)...
