Silos At The Mill, Salina, KS

The Salina Kanvas Project was able to bring world-famous artist Guido van Helten from Australia to Kansas. He is known for his larger-than-life murals on dams, silos and other massive structures. Thanks to efforts of Travis Young, The Salina Kanvas Project, and private donors, Guido can also add painting a grain elevator in the middle of Kansas to his accomplishments. The mural itself is of Salina children playing “Ring Around the Rosie.” The entire mill building is encircled by the children, using a photocollage of them taken by one of the children.

Concretal-Lasur is the perfect mineral medium to transform aged, rugged concrete into this stunning work of art that the community can enjoy for decades to come.
