trailblazing-silo-art-projectA new project to create a silo art trail stretching 200km and linking some of Victoria’s smallest towns is all set to make Wimmera-Mallee region Australia’s largest outdoor gallery.

 

The new project will see renowned street artists transform disused grain silos in six small towns.

 

“The Silo Art Trail is a ground-breaking project and an example of how creativity can revitalise a region and shape a new future for a community,” Victoria’s Minister for Creative Industries Martin Foley said.

 

The Silo Art Trail Project will create five new silo artworks which will border the Brim Silo, a 30m high artwork which has attracted thousands of visitors to Brim each month since it was launched in January.

 

He added, “The Brim Silo put Brim on the map, bringing in thousands of tourists to the town. This new project will spread the benefits across the region and showcase why Victoria is the creative state.”

 

Led by the Yarriambiack Shire Council in partnership with Melbourne street art company Juddy Roller and Creative Director Shaun Hossack, the project will see artists working closely with community members including Traditional Owners to create large-scale silo artworks that reflect, or tell a story of, the local community.

 

Victorian street artists including Rone and Adnate will be part of the project, alongside Russian artist Julia Volchkova, with more artists to be announced.

 

The first silo in Patchewollock is now underway with street artist Fintan Magee. The remaining silos will be painted one by one in the months ahead with the full trail expected to be launched in mid-2017. Each silo is expected to take approximately 14 days to paint.
