The 100 Gates Project connects artists with merchants to create original murals on roll-down security gates—building open-air galleries across New York City that beautify communities and enhance local economies and quality of life while diminishing unwanted graffiti.
We build our galleries one at a time; mural by mural. Because we know that one is one of the most powerful numbers—if not the most powerful. We believe that growth occurs when you add one, and then another. That positive change happens in steps of one-by-one, and that the greatest improvements and advancements are made when people move forward together in pursuit of a passion or goal.
We know that one can stand significantly by itself, and that adding one more to something that already exists can make it even more powerful.
