Silver City Mint and Art Centre
The Silver City Mint and Art Centre is an iconic tourism attraction next to housing the 'Big Picture'. There is exquisite silver jewellery crafted in Broken Hill, a wide range of artworks for purchase, and chocolates or fudge to entice your taste buds. The Silver City Mint and Art Centre offers a huge collection of art from local and interstate artists.
Many artists can be paralysed by that moment when they stare at a blank canvas - imagine the overwhelming feeling of facing a blank canvas measuring almost 100 metres long and 12 metres at its highest point! Peter Anderson had a vision and was able to take that first brush stroke and a million more to finish the Big Picture, the world's largest acrylic painting on canvas by a single artist. Opened to the public in 2001, Ando's Big Picture quickly became Broken Hill's number one tourist attraction!
