In the weeks leading up to Easter, the folks at Faberge set up a “Big Egg Hunt” all around the city and these works of art were not only fantastic to look at, but thanks to a downloadable app and a QR code, the folks in our fair Metropolis could scan the egg upon discovery and mark it as collected in their account. If they were the first to find an egg there would be prizes as well and that is pretty cool right? The exhibit ran all around the city beginning April 1st – 17th.
On April 18th, all of the eggs were gathered up and set up as a massive outdoor display in Rockefeller Center and since I was not able to hunt down any of the eggs in their original location figured that it would make a fun blog post for you to enjoy here on the Piercing Ken site. The way I did this was to shoot a photograph of each egg, and I apologize for not getting their names or the designer. There was only so much time. Perhaps if I find some deeper background on them I can append as necessary. Here we go.
I’ll stop now after the first fifty shots that I took and continue on in a couple of days. I read that there were more than two hundred of these eggs so I would aim to get as many as I possibly could. See you next time.
