Yesterday afternoon we got our first look at a couple of the metal shutter murals being installed along Bowery for After Hours: Murals on the Bowery, part of the New Museum’s Festival of Ideas for the New City (which kicks off a week from today), and during a bike stroll along Bowery last night it looked as though just over half of the 17 murals were finished—and a pair of painters were just starting work on a shutter at the northeast corner of Broome. Photos of all the finished murals after the jump.

Thought the Festival of Ideas for the New City will only last five days, the After Hours mural project will remain on view through July 2—plenty of time taggers and graffiti writers to make their contributions.
