Artist Using Faulkton Grain Elevator as Canvas
Internationally-known Australian artist Guido van Helten is using the side of a grain elevator in Faulkton as his canvas this summer. He aims to portray the essence of the town with this massive, photorealistic mural.
Van Helten has been commissioned to create public works of art throughout the world, from Belarus to Ukraine. Public and private funds were raised for the remarkable project in Faulkton, which sits on the east edge of town and can be viewed from miles away.
The mural will be unique to the region and is expected to boost area tourism. Learn more about the project here.
