This is not my own blog and also not about nature but it does depict a part of our beautiful world. I spent time in Chile doing research and love the country and its people and wanted to share these really beautiful images of gorgeous street art. Thanks to Cindy for sharing what she saw.
Chile is full of stunning street art.
Throughout Chile, large and small towns, are decorated with amazing open-air art, that is valued by the country and citizenry.
In Punta Arenas for example, the local government issued a statement saying that street art, “is a cultural manifestation, scenery which makes the walls more attractive and vital.”
The Punta Arenas city council actually financed a 400 metre section of street art.
They actively encourage street art in other parts of this most charming southerly city.
Santiago, Valparaiso, and Puerto Montt, all have a plethora of amazing open-air art.
Post the repressive Pinochet regime,
Chilean citizens exuberantly embrace and exercise their artistic talent and freedom of expression.
Walking amidst these amazing street art displays, is a wonderful experience.
Cheers to you with Chile’s stunning open-air art~
Thank you for your kind thoughtfulness and how lucky you were to do graduate work in this gorgeous country!
