Yup. Most of the silo art in Victoria is on silos owned by Graincorp, and Graincorp commissioned the artists to paint them, but others, and I thinking of Kimba, Coonamble, Gulgargambone and some others have been commissioned by the local communities to attract people, or at least to get them to get off the highway for a few minutes and maybe bring a few $ to the town. Millmerran QLD has the town covered in murals, which I have stopped at a few times on trips through there and some of those are in some of my other trip posts.
