Faberge Big Egg Hunt NYC

Have a go at finding the egg I created an egg for the 'Big Egg Hunt' in NYC, the world’s biggest egg hunt organised by Fabergé.

The event is 100% charitable, raising money for children in New York City through Studio in a School, and conservation efforts through Elephant Family, saving the endangered Asian elephant and its habitat.

200 egg sculptures, each individually created by artists, designers and creatives, will be displayed across the city for three weeks then auctioned for the charities. 

Other egg designers include Diane von Furstenberg, Ronnie Wood, Marc Quinn, Bruce Weber, Zaha Hadid, Peter Beard, Carolina Herrera, Jacques Torres and William Wegman, the eggs will be ‘hidden’ in public places across all five boroughs, taking hunters on a journey to find them.

In partnership with Sotheby’s, the highly collectable sculptures are auctioned at the end of the event, raising substantial funds for economically disadvantaged children and critically endangered wildlife.
