On view for free in Walkley, Sheffield, every day until 7 July

A new display of street murals, sculptures and comic books around Walkley is open from Saturday 4th May and runs until 7th July.

Shops, cafes and other local businesses and organisations have come together to display stunning new temporary street murals and sculptures by local teenagers, inspired by nature themes of the Ruskin Collection at the Millennium Gallery.

From Walkley Library to St Mary’s Church, murals of birds, trees, shells and snakes bring life and colour to buildings and green space along South Road, S6. Sculptures of dragons, mushrooms and fantastic beasts adorn the outside of Walkley Library. Comic books called Seeing Things Differently can be read in some of the local cafes.

The artworks have been made by local teenagers who took part in a project, Seeing Beauty, Inspiring Minds, to express what matters them and have their work displayed in their local neighbourhood. They created the artworks with professional artists, at Walkley Library. The project is supported by Arts Council England, Walkley Library, Ruskin in Sheffield, the Guild of St George, and Museums Sheffield, as part of bicentenary celebrations of John Ruskin.
