Calling All Artists! Eggstravaganza 2019
EGGstravaganza was conceived in 2014 as a celebration of the 50th anniversary of the Village. Because of its wild popularity it will be celebrated again in 2019, the Village’s 55th anniversary. EGGstravaganza serves as a community awareness and fundraising vehicle for the Public Arts Initiative of Egg Harbor, Inc. and the Egg Harbor Business Association. Egg forms, supplied by the committee, will be transformed by thirty participating artists and displayed in Egg Harbor during the 2019 summer season. Upon conclusion of the exhibit, the art will be sold at a live auction with the proceeds equally benefiting the artists and future public art projects in the Village.

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.
