Nicolina Brightens Up Valparaiso, Chile

Last month, The Local filmed artist Nicolina as she left a goodbye mural on her East Second Street block before setting off on a trip to Valparaiso, Chile and other locales. If you’re curious to see what she’s up to abroad, read this press release and watch the accompanying video released by the U.S. Embassy in Santiago, Chile: She recently collaborated with three Chilean artists and a group of children on a mural for the Instituto Chileno Norteamericano de Cultura in Valparaiso, as well as embellishing her existing paintings on the historic town’s funicular cars. Proof that the ol’ Lower East Side exports more than just salamis to boys in the Army.
