100 Gates is a street art project seeking to canvas the Lower East Side with original murals from local and international street artists throughout the summer.

The project, now in it's 2nd summer, is the brainchild of artist Bill Rohan.

For the latest iteration of the 100 Gates Project, the LES BID put out a call for artists and connected them with participating businesses. Together, they collaborated on the murals’ designs. Each gate has received $300 to cover the cost for supplies […] and any money left over goes to the artist.

Check out 100 Gates for more on the gates or the participating artists.
