Nicole Holderbaum: This Florida-based visual artist and muralist is also known as “Nico.” They shared on Instagram of the experience:
“I was so inspired by @jlo in my research and preparation for this project, and from the documentary itself. She has persisted through the torment and criticism of the public eye to impact our culture and our world, and to break boundaries for women and the Latinx community…Inspired by JLO’s story and with the desire to honor the opportunity to the fullest, I planned to connect and work with Latina artists from the Bronx on this project! It was a really meaningful experience to connect with these women and grow with them through the mural.”
