Wagga artists have backed a proposal to transform abandoned silos across the Riverina into 100ft artworks but some residents believe its important to preserve the region’s history.
It follows a suggestion to foster a tourist trail between Albury and Wagga featuring redecorated grain and water towers.
The redevelopment of silos into art canvases has been successfully launched in Victoria’s Wimmera-Mallee region and other New South Wales projects, such as this magnificent piece in Weethalle, are gaining traction.
Now, the idea has sparked in Wagga and resident artists Tyrone Hoerler and Aunty Kath Withers have already expressed interest in the project.
But what do you think? Do you support the redecoration of abandoned grain silos across the Riverina? Or should these landmarks remain untouched?
