Despite setbacks, the Mas Miró project to turn artist Joan Miró’s country residence into a museum will soon be completed. On April 20, coinciding with the 125th anniversary of the painter’s birth, the new museum in Mont-roig del Camp, in Baix Camp, will open to the public.
The project stalled at the start of 2017 when the Joan Miró Foundation failed to get a state subsidy it expected. Yet, a few days ago, a 200,000-euro subsidy for the project was finally approved.
An area visitors can see in the first phase of the museum’s opening is Miró’s study, which he built in 1935, and which features two of his murals. On April 20, the summer house will be open, and the old storeroom, which will act as a reception.
