Communities across the state have been turning their town’s structures into stunning artworks and tourism hotspots.

In June, a 26-metre tall water tank in Coonamble was turned into a visually appealing mural by artists John Murray, Bob Barrett and Sooty Welsh.

Over 500 people attended the opening of the  Weethalle Silo Art Project, in the tiny town of Weethalle, near West Wyalong.

Mongolian-born muralist Heesco Khosnaran, commenced work on the 31 metre by 21 metre silo canvas, and stuck to the theme of reflecting the local community and its agricultural ties.

The Rotary Club in Wellington has expressed an interest in leading a project to painting the silos in the town. 

Encouraged by a fund available from the NSW Government, Wellington Rotarians are looking for ideas for artwork on the silos. 

Narromine Shire Council general manager Jane Redden said it could possibly happen in the Narromine Shire. 

“We have been considering art on council structures,” she said.

Although no decision has been made, Mrs Redden said it could happen in the future in the shire.

We have considered art on community structures. - Jane Redden, council GM
