The weather wasn't kind to the artists hard at work at the Sheffield Muralfest today. Sheltering from the rain behind plastic sheeting, work seems to be progressing well. The artists will down brushes at 1pm on Saturday 18th April and the winner will be announced at the Town Hall at 5pm. There will be a food and wine festival starting at 1pm and a bush dance is planned in the evening.

Their inspiration for 2009 comes from the poem Fire and Life by Cindy Bennett -
Submerged beneath earth,
Molten rock spews forth its fire,
Creating new life.
