Magdalena Marcenaro, a NU Perspectives Artist, was recently commissioned by Pacific Street Association to complete two public murals in Brooklyn. In celebration, NU Hotel is hosting a gallery opening and a toast to the artist.

Magdalena Marcenaro's neighborhood mural "Think with Your Heart," located on Pacific Street in Brooklyn, was made to revitalize the area.

"'Think with Your Heart' breathes new life into transitioning streets. We're honored to feature her [Magdalena Marcenaro's] work and call her a partner," said Javier Egipciaco, NU Hotel Brooklyn's general manager.

Artist Magdalena Marcenaro made her debut at NU Hotel earlier this year with a colorful, floor-to-ceiling mural in a guestroom as part of the NU Perspectives project. Now, she has taken her art to the streets with the creation of two neighborhood murals, located two blocks from the hotel on Pacific Street between Smith and Dean Streets. To celebrate the completion of these murals, NU Hotel is hosting a gallery show of the artist’s work beginning on June 6, commencing with a toast to the artist.

Marcenaro’s gallery show in Misdemeanor, NU Hotel’s lobby bar and lounge will feature 15 of her mixed media works. The show will be up from June 6 – 27 and the artist will have limited-edition silkscreen prints of one the neighborhood mural images available for sale. Commissioned by the Pacific Street Association, "Think with Your Heart" is intended to revitalize the area as it undergoes construction.

“We’re delighted to support Magdalena as she uses her talents to give back to the community with street art that is inspirational and positive,” said Javier Egipciaco, NU Hotel Brooklyn’s general manager. “It’s wonderful how passionate she is about getting involved. ‘Think with Your Heart’ breathes new life and beauty into transitioning streets. We’re honored to feature her work and call her a partner.”

The toast and gallery premiere begins at 7:00 p.m. on June 6 in Misdemeanor. Attendees will be invited to take the short walk to view the murals at 7:30 p.m. and will then return to the hotel for the remainder of the opening.
