EGGstravaganza 2019

unnamed (1)

Sponsored jointly by the Public Arts Initiative of Egg Harbor and the Egg Harbor Business Association, EGGstravaganza 2019 is now in the history books.

The egg auction was 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.

Eggstravaganza 2014

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.
