doors, gates and mailboxes

wall cut, Unnumbered no. 2, Northern Blvd., IND Queens Blvd. Line

Doors, gates and mailboxes are street features that share a (mainly) vertical format and attraction for street artists, who festoon them with slaps (stickers), paint and other media. Many serve as permanent, but constantly evolving public art installations, continuously transformed by the addition and decay of materials.
