PUBLIC Silo Trail - Journey through the Heartland

see the big picture on the public silo trail

Stories. Silos. Street art stars.

We're bringing our program of street art and stories to Albany, and this time we're throwing an international artist duo into the mix. From 24th February – 26th  March 2018, the PUBLIC Silo Trail will paint the town not just red, but a whole lot of colours.
Australian/Singaporean artists Yok and Sheryo are creating an epic mural across the Albany Silos and Western Australians Helen Ansell, Rachelle Dusting, Nick Zafir, Andrew Frazer and Glenn Hegedus have painted Western Power Transformer Boxes across the town. [ Download map here ]

CBH Group’s Albany Grain Terminal is a working site, and for your safety, access to the terminal and port is prohibited. We’re excited for you to see the works unfold. The best and safest sites are the Boat Shed carpark off Princess Royal Drive and the Old Town Jetty at the Albany marina. You can check out these viewing locations outlined on the map.

FORM’s PUBLIC Silo Trail is putting regional Western Australia up in lights, bringing world class murals to grain silos, transformer boxes and iconic infrastructure in unexpected towns right across the state.

This is the fourth giant mural by famous street artists to pop up on grain silos across Western Australia as part of the PUBLIC Silo Trail, a creative project by FORM celebrating the state’s regions. The project will ultimately create a trail drawing visitors to regional WA, raising its profile and boosting cultural tourism.  

As part of this trail, story gathering and social documentary project Homegrown Stories will offer a new way of knowing the life and stories of the people behind the state’s regional towns and agricultural networks.
