About The Adventure
We're excited to get a bit of culture on and visit the regional expedition of the Archibald Prize at the beautiful MAC yapang Lake Macquarie. How good that it's coming right to our backyard?!
We'll meet at Marmong Point and walk along the lakefront to MAC, about 2 km total, and join a guided tour of the exhibit. After a browse around the gift shop, we'll have a coffee and check out the artworks on the grounds. Once back at Marmong Point, we'll share a picnic lunch on the waterfront. Sounds like a fantastic Friday to us!

About the Archibald Prize:
The annual Archibald Prize is eagerly anticipated by artists and audiences alike.
Judged by the trustees of the Art Gallery of NSW, the prize is awarded to the best portrait painting. Since 1921 it has highlighted figures from all walks of life, from famous faces to local heroes, reflecting back to us the stories of our times.
The open competition has been awarded annually to the best portrait, ‘preferentially of some man or woman distinguished in arts, letters, science or politics, painted by any artist resident in Australasia’. Entries to the Archibald Prize must be painted in the past year from at least one live sitting.
The Archibald Prize 2022 regional tour is an opportunity to see finalist works at the Museum of Art and Culture, yapang (MAC yapang)
