The Big Egg Hunt presented by Fabergé was the world's largest Easter egg hunt, featuring over 250 oversized eggs designed by an extraordinary roster of artists ranging from Jeff Koons to Zaha Hadid and Ralph Lauren to, well, me. Throughout the month of April these eggs were hidden all over the city in a veritable public art scavenger hunt. For a few remaining days, through April 25th, the entire collection can be seen on display at Rockefeller Center.
Recognizing the great, once in a lifetime opportunity to create a Fabergé egg, I encrusted mine in ornamental calligraphy composed of 5000 Swarovski crystals. All of the eggs are being auctioned off online with proceeds benefitting the Studio in a School and Elephant Family charities. You can bid on this unique work of art right now by heading to Paddle8. The auction ends on April 26th at 3pm.
