It's almost time for the Festival of Ideas, the glorified street fair that will bring fluorescent worms and Rem Koolhaas to the Bowery between May 4 and May 11. As part of the festivities, 17 artists were recruited to repaint some of the roll-down security gates along the Bowery, and Bowery Boogie has spotted the first gate murals. Above, a Doors lyric on one gate.
And the one at 267 Bowery:
