The COVID-19 pandemic has affected many events across Australia, with local projects also not immune to the virus' ability to cause havoc.
One major project that has been delayed is the Kaniva and Serviceton silo painting project, which was scheduled to begin in March this year.
Goroke is another location that will see their silos painted.
The Kaniva and District Progress Association are working with the West Wimmera Shire Council and silo owners, GrainCorp, to deliver the project.
Council's communications officer Erin Witmitz said council are currently waiting to finalise their agreement with GrainCorp.
She also stated that the entire project has been delayed due to COVID-19 restrictions, but council hope to have the agreement signed and painting commence in the "very near future".
Before the pandemic, chief executive David Leahy said tourism contributed almost $8.5 million towards the total $443.5 million economic output of West Wimmera Shire.
"Extending silo art installations into West Wimmera is seen as a significant opportunity to grow contribution," Mr Leahy stated in December last year.
Kaniva residents hope the painted silos will eventually encourage more people to come to the town and see some of the existing attractions.
Kaniva and District Progress Association is aiming to have the silos included in the Silo Art Trail; a series of painted silos that stretches over 200km, linking Brim with neighbouring towns Lascelles, Patchewollock, Rosebery, Rupanyup and Sheep Hills.
The new artworks will also be integrated with Wimmera Mallee Tourism's augmented reality app, which was currently operating at other silo art locations.
More information about the project is expected to released in the near future.
