Established in 1880, the Museum of Fine Arts (Museo Nacional de Bellas Artes) in Santiago Chile is the oldest in South America.
Museo Nacional de Bellas Artes is a source of national pride and culture welcoming over 500,000 visitors per year. Vandalized in August 2022, and expertly cleaned by Alerta Graffiti using Vanish Paint Remover and Bare Brick Stone & Masonry Graffiti Remover.
When the domes of Santiago’s National Museum of Fine Arts were vandalized by graffiti, the act - which was caught on camera - was widely repudiated by netizens. Governor of Santiago Claudio Orrego condemned the act of vandalism and established a multidisciplinary team consisting of the National Center for Conservation & Restoration and the National Monuments Council to repair the damage.
