Kimba unveils its new pride and joy | TIME LAPSE VIDEO

A huge crowd of Kimba locals and special guests turned up on Railway Terrace on Friday evening as the Igniting Kimba Working Group launched the finished silo art.

Due to the size of the silos, the group decided to make the main event, the unveiling of sponsors board, rather than try to put a bow around the artwork.

Local members of parliament Rowan Ramsey and Eddie Hughes, joined Kimba mayor Dean Johnson, in unveiling the board.

Artist Cam Scale said he was “stoked” with the final piece.

“I’m happy with how it came out and the reception it’s received,” Mr Scale said.

Platinum sponsor Viterra’s western region operations manager James Murray said the company thought the art was fantastic and it would not affect the upcoming harvest season.

“We were still an operating silo during the painting and we will accommodate for the incoming tourists,” Mr Murray said.

Fellow platinum sponsor Cavpower’s Port Lincoln branch manager Lou Rawson was blown away with the project and said the company would continue to support regional South Australia.

Kimba mayor Dean Johnson said the feedback around the silo art had been all positive.

“There’s an exhilarating buzz in the community and all the visitors that I’ve spoken to have been stunned by it,” he said.

“I’m yet to hear anything negative about it.”
