St. James Silo Art – A Work In Progress

A new addition to the Benalla Silo Art Trail in country Victoria is the St. James Silo Art. This mural art on a grand scale is an ongoing Work In Progress by local artist Tim Bowtell, with draughthorses and an old truck that once carted bushels of wheat to the silos, and local businessmen including Sir G. J. Coles whose name is synonymous with Coles Supermarkets today (the Coles family made a substantial donation to paint the 1943 era GrainCorp silos). I am curious to see what the final silo will feature?
