Francis Street Mural
City of Adelaide is in the process of commissioning an artist for the development of the City Library ‘place of possibility’- inspired mural artwork to be displayed on the wall in Francis Street (off Rundle Mall), owned by Rundle Place.
The mural will act as a gateway to the City Library, engaging city residents and users to be intrigued and entice them to visit the City Library and explore local surrounds.
