Silo Art – Past and Present

The Silo Art at Devenish in north east Victoria pays tribute to the women who have nursed our armed forces over the years, from World War 1 to the present. They were officially ‘opened’ on the eve of ANZAC Day in 2018.

One of the reasons these small towns sponsor silo art is to attract tourists who will hopefully spend a few dollars in the town to keep places like the general store and local pub operational. It’s a win for the locals then.

Here’s a newspaper article from The Age about the Devenish silos and their art.

This would have to be one of my favourites on the Silo Art Trail.
