The Big Picture

You will be delighted by Broken Hill’s much loved attraction, the ‘Big Picture’, the world’s largest acrylic painting by a single artist housed in the Silver City Mint and Art Centre.

Ando, a Broken Hill local completed the 12m x 100m canvas over a two-year period which features a striking scene of lightning strikes, dust storms, mountains and a saltbush landscape. An incredible feat for an artist who is completely self-taught. You will be speechless as you enter the room housing the painting, which is described as an immersive experience of walking into a painting. You can take in this awe-inspiring panorama as you enjoy drinks and canapes served on the deck area, overlooking the painting and hear more of the history behind the ‘Big Picture.

Recommended Fitness Level: LOW – short walk required amongst the artwork.
