Grain Silo Art


I am a sucker for interesting and unusual art, and this morning I saw grain silo art (on the internet that is). In Brim, Victoria, Australia an artist, Guido van Helten, just completed a massive undertaking by painting four portraits of farmers on decommissioned wheat silos, making a rather large and impressive mural.

Brim’s silos have been dubbed Australia’s Mt. Rushmore

For more information and photos of this project check out their Facebook page, and articles here and here.

Curious about silos and their function? Jenny at FarmWife Transparency has a great post on Cathedrals of the Prairie.
