Happy Easter, everyone! Gatherings of families and friends seem to be all out this weekend whether egg hunting, attending church services, or enjoying brunch and dinner together. My husband and I really enjoyed listening to Pastor Adam Burt at Every Nation today. Afterwards, we, like every other New Yorker who braved through this brutal winter, walked avenues and avenues to take in some sun while it’s nice out.
Though Easter bunnies and eggs have nothing to do with the real meaning of Easter, it’s hard not to use this beautiful week to celebrate the talent shown through The Big Egg Hunt of NYC. If you’re out and about, why not visit Rockefeller Center to see all 260+ eggs designed by artists all over New York City? It’s quite a sight to see, but be prepared for crowds and lots of people getting in your pictures! The eggs will be there until April 25th when they already have been auctioned to bidders on April 22nd.
To save you lovely readers from scrolling endlessly, I put a majority of the eggs I hunted in a collage form. All were taken with the iPhone, so no special photography here!
Some of these eggs are worth quite a bit, which is wonderful news for the 2 organizations that the money is going to (Studio in the Schools and Elephant Family). As of now, Jeff Koon’s egg is already worth $350,000! My personal favorite is the stunning egg by Chris Carnabuci (below), originally located at the entrance of the MET museum. Though I had a lot of favorites, this one took me by surprise because of its elegance and detailed craftwork.
Which one is your favorite? Be sure to share! 🙂
Once again, Happy Easter!
