Artists murals on security gates of stores

A new exhibition is placing original art in some unexpected spaces.

Artists are transforming something you probably never even noticed into works of art.

And Derrick Adams hopes his eyes lure you in.

The New York artist works on paper, wood, even fabric, but a security gate is a first for him.

The murals are bold and graphic based since that translates best on the undulating metal.

A sign painting company called Colossal Media made the artists' designs come to life.

All the works speak to the Bowery, an area that's been a popular with artists for generations.

And now the mundane gates usually hideaway stores.
