Is there any public bank of clipart images in Tikz / PSTrics, much like those found in tools like Visio?

With Inkscape you can download any SVG clipart from OpenClipArt.org and convert it to PDF or EPS. – Werner Apr 5 '12 at 15:56
@Werner: Or to TikZ, using the Inkscape2TikZ plugin. – Jake Apr 5 '12 at 15:59
I don't know but, by chance, I was just looking at this – DJP Apr 5 '12 at 16:06
@DJP I also found that file. I was looking around for a public database with lots of pictures just like those in that file, but yet I found none – Mário Apr 5 '12 at 16:11
@Jake: have you used that plugin? The code project is pretty stale and I never got it to work. – Matthew Leingang Apr 5 '12 at 17:42

Both TikZ and PStricks are used for creating images, rather than simply pasting them in. As such, you won't find clipart as such, but will find galleries of example images. For TikZ, you should look at TeXample while for PStricks there are 2D and 3D galleries on the PStricks website.
