Casa de Vico (Newspaper House)

Along Calle Central sits a building that the locals continuously plaster with newspaper clippings. The project began more than two years ago, and is more than just graffiti; anyone is allowed to post. The building permits citizens of Liberia to express themselves uniquely and collectively, to powerfully render their city's history with their bare hands. Many articles are ancient, and it is not uncommon to see a local Liberian pasting over older or stale pieces with more exciting and recent news. Located on Calle Real, two blocks north of the park.
