In the beginning of April, New York City did something so cool. They teamed up with Faberge to host a gigantic, city-wide Easter egg hunt for charity, called The Big Egg Hunt NYC. They took these 2 and 1/2 foot tall eggs, gave them to over 260 artists, designers, architects, sculptors (and more), and pretty much told them to just have at it! It’s absolutely amazing how these artists took the exact same shape and dimensions, and just got so incredibly creative with it. Then the eggs were taken and hidden in plain sight all over NYC. Some were inside stores, buildings, hotel lobbies, and more, while others were just right out there on the sidewalk (many not even under glass). How cool is that? They even had a “Where’s Waldo” egg that kept changing locations. There was an app to download so that every time you found an egg you could scan it to see information about the artist and the inspiration behind their piece, and then the more eggs you “collected,” the more entries you gained into a sweepstakes to win big-ticket prizes from Faberge. I just think this is the coolest thing. It’s almost like giving a bunch of artists a blank canvas and just asking them to create whatever they want…except instead of a flat canvas, it’s a giant three dimensional egg! I love how they’re all the same dimensions, but completely different – it’s like there’s no limit to how imaginative people can be. The gray egg in the picture above is by Marchesa – it looks just like one of their gorgeous Oscar gowns!
