The Cuban fishing town of Jaimanitas is better known today as Fusterlandia. Created by artist Jose Fuster, the little town is a unique work of public art. Begun by the artists several decades ago, the arts complex now covers houses throughout the neighborhood and on walls lining the streets.
If you enjoy public art, and artistic fantasies realized in vivid forms and colors, Fusterlandia is a one-of-a-kind must-see in Havana. From the rooftop, there’s a view of the sea. Fuster mosaics embedded onto surfaces in every direction offer a mighty distraction.
Tom and I visited Fusterlandia while in Havana, on an outing organized by Ruby Aguilar, aka Cuba Ruby. Click here or on the photo above for a look at what we found there!
