Sponsored jointly by the Public Arts Initiative of Egg Harbor and the Egg Harbor Business Association, EGGstravaganza 2019 was a massive success.
EGGstravaganza serves as a fundraising vehicle to promote permanent public art in the Village of Egg Harbor. Join us at the Donald and Carol Kress Pavilion for a live auction of the eggs! Proceeds to equally benefit the artists and future public arts projects in the Village. The egg auction is an “eggciting” event with an “eggcelent” return of $95,750. Each artist received half of the selling price of their egg and the remaining proceeds, after expenses, will be used to benefit the public arts in the Village of Egg Harbor.
To celebrate the Village of Egg Harbor’s 50th anniversary in 2014, the Public Arts Committee hosted its first public art event: EGGstravaganza. Egg sculptures designed and created by local and regional artists were on display from mid-May through the middle of August and auctioned off at a gala on August 23, 2014. Fifty percent of the sale of the egg was given to the artist and the remaining fifty percent was used to purchase public art pieces for the Village’s permanent collection.
After EGGstravagnza 2014, the Village was able to purchase pieces for the permanent collection: “Blue Sail”, “Egg Harbor Meadow”, “Steel Rooster”, and “Sunset Melody”, and commissioned three eggs, “Living Canopy”, “Stegg”, and “Wind in My Sails” for permanent display in front of the Bertschinger Center.
