If you’ve seen a giant egg somewhere in NYC today you’re not trippin’ and trust us it won’t be the last. Spring is here and with it comes the 2014 edition of The Fabergé Big Egg Hunt. Beginning today you’ll be able to get a glimpse of eggs displaying the artwork of some of street art’s most renowned NYC artists.

You might be wondering what all the hubbub is about, well check this. The Fabergé Big Egg Hunt is an innovative and engaging fundraising initiative that includes the rolling out of over 260 large egg sculptures throughout New York City’s five boroughs from April 1st to 25th, 2014. The kicker though is that this year they’ve got a pinch of NY steelo.

Introducing this years livest eggs aka The Street Art Collection. This collection includes some of New York’s finest, from legendary writers like Krink, Cope 2, Indie184, and Cost, to the fresh street aesthetic of Daine, ASVP, and Jason Woodside. Jason, a painter living and working in New York City, teamed up with Marsha an Executive Creative Director of Saatchi & Saatchi X New York, and also an artist to curate the collection with assistance provided by Chris Vidal from Supra. Both artists have eggs in the Egg Hunt. Marsha had this to say,

‘Its been a privilege working with the team on this project, and we can’t thank the artists and locations enough for their enthusiasm and their great work. Happy hunting, and bidding. ’

It’s gonna be tough finding all the eggs sine they are hidden in locations across all five boroughs. However the street art pieces can be found in lower Manhattan locations including Chinatown, Nolita, and the LES; locales were selected to add the character of the streets to the work.
