Cherish the Moments: Aruba Artist Unveils Stunning New Mural at the Natural Bridge Store

Aruban based artist Armando Goedgedrag has unveiled his latest masterpiece, a stunning mural entitled "Cherish the Moments".

This mural is at the iconic Natural Bridge, offering an abundance of photo opportunities and unique selfie spots for visitors. 

The mural features a breathtaking display of Aruba's rich wildlife, including the Shoco, the national symbol of Aruba, and the Prikichi, the national bird of Aruba, along with other beautiful animals that can be found on the island. Each animal depicted in the mural was photographed on the island, making the artwork a truly authentic representation of Aruba's natural beauty.

Goedgedrag spent three and a half weeks creating the mural, which he hopes will inspire visitors to capture beautiful moments with their loved ones and share them with the world. The title of the mural, "Cherish the Moments," reflects this sentiment. "I wanted to create something that would not only showcase the beauty of Aruba's wildlife but also encourage people to appreciate the precious moments they have with their loved ones," said Goedgedrag. "I hope that this mural will serve as a reminder to cherish those moments and make memories that will last a lifetime."

The Natural Bridge is an ideal location for the mural, as it is one of Aruba's most popular tourist attractions, attracting visitors from all over the world. The mural is open to the public and is expected to be a major draw for both locals and tourists alike. "We are proud to have been a part of this project and to have helped bring Armando Goedgedrag's vision to life at the Natural Bridge" said a spokesperson for the attraction. "The mural is not only a stunning work of art, but it also celebrates the unique wildlife that can be found on our island. We encourage everyone to come and see it for themselves and take advantage of the numerous photo opportunities it presents."

In addition to the stunning mural, visitors to the Natural Bridge will also enjoy the beautiful building that houses the attraction. The building has an Aruba country home look and feel, which is typical of the old-style homes on the island. Inside, visitors will find state-of-the-art restrooms, a nice bar, gift shop, and sitting areas that offer panoramic views of the ocean and surrounding hills through a series of big windows. The view is second to none. The gift shop offers a variety of unique souvenirs, including the popular Biba Dushi line of apparel. The bar serves a wide selection of alcoholic and nonalcoholic beverages, snacks, sandwiches, and ice cream. The Natural Bridge is open daily from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m.
