Big Stars + Local Heroes in Broken Hill

Travel journalist, Katrina Lobley gave Broken Hill a great write up in the Weekend Australian on 17 October. She mentioned a number of iconic cultural institutions and artworks in the article, which can only booster the importance of art and culture to tourism in the Far West. West Darling Art's executive director, Cathy Farry estimates about 50 artists are among the city's 17,000 plus residents. She comments that Broken Hill's artistic reputation dates from the rise in the 1970s of the Brushmen of the Bush, who hit the big time and helped get that story out that Broken Hill encourages and nurtured artists.
