Many of the BOOMDubbo commissioned work are based on characters that have a connection to Dubbo and the wider region.
They are the heroes, antiheroes, famous, infamous and significant individuals who have shaped our identity and the narrative of our history – a cross-section of eras, backgrounds, pursuits and personalities.
