the big egg hunt nyc

Cronin was invited to participate in The Fabergé Big Egg Hunt NYC thanks to Parlor Gallery in Asbury Park, NJ. The FBEH was a public art project that aimed to be an immersive and engaging community event for people of all ages to get involved in and to bring light and raise money for charities. There were over 260 large egg sculptures, each designed by globally renowned artists, designers, architects, photographers and brands including Jeff Koons, Julian Schnabel, Ralph Lauren, Tommy Hilfiger, Peter Beard, and of Ryan Cronin among others. The eggs were placed throughout the five boroughs and were then auctioned off via Paddle 8. The Hunt benefited conservation organization, Elephant Family and Studio in a School, a program that brings visual arts to New York City’s public schools.
