TRIBUTE | The Purrrfect Outdoor Museum

If you’re reading us from the UK or the USA, the title of this post should be MEOW.

But in Spanish, MIAU is the sound cats make. And it is also the acronym for “Museo Inacabado de Arte Urbano”, which would translate as “Unfinished Museum of Urban Art”. It is a project developed at the Spanish town of Fanzara where street art is exposed in an outdoor museum.

When visiting Fanzara, “you will enjoy big and small artwork, lasting pieces of art, murals and sculptures”. This initiative turns the Spanish village streets into the museum, and the entrance is free –obviously.

It is remarkable that a small town like this has such a beautiful vision on what street art is. They’re not afraid of graffiti. And it’s not only not banned, but they enjoy having the walls and the buildings of their town painted and decorated with tenths of pieces of art by over 20 artists.

Fanzara is only 30 km (about 18 miles) away from our HQ, in the province of Castellón. You can be sure that we will be there some day between the 16th and the 19th of July. And we hope to see some of you too.
