The Great Easter Egg-Venture Overview
Singapore’s biggest Easter Fiesta returns in time for the March school holidays from 10 March – 17 April 2016.
Organised by the Sentosa HarbourFront Business Association, the theme for this third year is “A New Beginning”. The Giant Egg Hunt this year features 60 eggs, hand-painted by students from Temasek Polytechnic’s School of Design, CHIJ Primary School (Toa Payoh), Park View Primary School, youths from Focus on Family’s FamChamps, as well as local and regional artists from The Affordable Art Fair.
They include Affordable Art Fair’s Young Talent Programme winner Zhang Fuming, renowned local artist Liu Xuan Qi Leo, artists collective Band of Doodlers and Iskander Walen who will be co-creating the artwork with his 2-year old son. These next-generation Singaporeans painted their vision for Singapore’s future onto the Giant Eggs, each measuring 1.8m tall.
Organisations and individuals can bring home these works of art by submitting their bids to the Association. Check out the Egg-xibition HERE.
More than S$50,000 worth of prizes are up for grabs in The Great Egg Hunt through weekly draws, a grand draw, as well as a special category for tourists.
