Sheffield is also renowned as Australia's Town of Murals. Since the first mural was started in 1986, more than 40 others have followed. Mural Fest sees artists engaged in a public paint off over 6.5 days. Each artist must complete a 2100mm x 4800mm mural, using the same poem as their mural's central theme and inspiration.
