International Mural Fest

Exhibition and Shows

21 Apr 2019 to 27 Apr 2019

Be captivated by this truly unique art competition that is held annually in Sheffield – the ‘Town of Murals’, in Tasmania, Australia, commencing Easter Sunday every year. Mural Fest is so successful that similar events are now happening interstate and overseas.
Each year, nine artists compete in a public ‘paint off’ from Easter Sunday to the following Saturday. Each artist must complete a mural, using the same poem as their mural’s central theme and inspiration.
The competition is conducted in Mural Park – Sheffield’s very own outdoor art gallery in the heart of Tasmania’s Cradle Mountain touring region.
Mural Fest tests artistic skill, endurance and tenacity: artists are subjected to public scrutiny, time constraints and sometimes unpredictable Tasmanian weather!
The Redwater Creek Railway steam train will be running during this time. Check the website for details.
