Fanzara, Unfinished Museum of Urban Art

Miau, Fanzara 1

Fanzara is a small village at Spain, at 20 km from Castelló and 80 from València. It was an unknown village for almost everyone until 2015, when it was done an invitation to street artists for draw graffiti all around the village, on the walls of the houses. The event was named M.I.A.U., acronyms of Museo Inacabado de Arte Urbano (Unfinished Museum of Urban Art). In Spanish miau means meow.

The Guardian published on 2016 an article about this town: How embracing graffiti stopped one Spanish village going to the wall

I’ve visited Fanzara twice, first in 2016, last in December 2018. Since the first event at 2015, more artists have gone and added new graffiti, so, as it was conceived, it’s an unfinished museum, always evolving.
