Mural design workshops were held at the Broken Hill Art Exchange, conducted by BHAE visiting artist in residence Shane Vink, and local artists Ray Blick and Susan Thomas. There were six student groups from the MLC School, Sydney with up to twenty students attending each workshop. The students designed a series of eight different images depicting Albert and Margaret Morris and local flora and fauna, as a ‘Tribute to the Regeneration Area, Broken Hill’. Four images have been painted on the outside of the Broken Hill Art Exchange Southside Art Centre and the mural has been submitted into the Desert Equinox Earth Art Prize.
