A vibrant, storied new piece has been painted at the Disney Springs Art Walk: A Canvas of Expression. Hailing from New Mexico, Nani Chacon is the newest artist to tell a story with her paint brush, creating a mural where each detail holds meaning.

Inspired by her strong Native American roots and just in time for Native American Heritage Month, Nani created a piece that tells a story of the relationship between landscape and indigenous people of the area, something she finds incredibly important and enjoys showing in her work. She hopes her work conveys the individuality of indigenous peoples’ nations. Check out the video below to hear more about Nani’s work, the meaning behind it and what she hopes guests will take away from it.


For Nani, the opportunity to be featured amongst the works of the other Disney Springs Art Walk: A Canvas of Expression artists was incredibly special. “It meant a lot to me to be able to paint a piece for Disney Springs Art Walk. The opportunity has allowed me to express myself, be representative of my region and given me the ability to share my ideas in a public format,” Nani said as she put the finishing paint brush strokes on her piece.
