Tony Long hangs The Great Picture from the ceiling of the Culver Arts Center in Riverside, Calif. The installation took three days.

Five years ago, a team of photographers created the world's largest photograph by converting an Orange County jet hangar into a giant camera. The 100 foot-long image is now on public view for only the second time in the United States at the UC Riverside Culver Center of the Arts. KPCC's Steven Cuevas reports on the challenges of creating and installing such a giant piece.
