SALA at the Silos 2024

Each night throughout August, the Karoonda Silos will take part in the The South Australian Living Artists (SALA) Festival.

A unique outdoor exhibition, where digital projections of artwork will light up the main street silos, creating a spectacle visible from near and far. This unique platform offers artists the rare opportunity to see their creations magnified on an epic concrete canvas!

2024 Theme: ‘THINK BIG’
An exhibition to explore the scale, possibility and imagination of public art. Challenging artists to not only dream big but to see their art in a form that stretches beyond conventional gallery walls, magnified under the dark sky in regional South Australia.
