After two years of artwashing the Lower East Side, the 100 Gates Project reaches its namesake goal. And it’s only fitting the that 100th gate in the eponymous street art program appear on Katz’s Deli.
Artist L’Amour Suprim was bestowed the honor, and spent yesterday decorating two of the restaurant’s shutters. Apparently there will be a party next month to commemorate the gate.
As previously reported, the 100 Gates Project, a former recipient of a $30,000 Neighborhood Challenge Grant, began in Seward Park two years ago as a joint effort between the Lower East Side Partnership and skater-artist Billy Rohan. It’s selling point is as an “anti-graffiti” measure (i.e. beautification) that even the 7th Precinct supports.
