There’s an awesome Easter egg hunt taking place right now throughout New York City. The Big Egg Hunt NY, hosted by Fabergé, is a three-week-long scavenger hunt for over 250 giant Easter egg sculptures, each sculpted and decorated by an amazing selection of artists, designers and architects.

Last month we featured Kevin Champeny’s beautiful paisley Sweet Pysanka egg. Other participants include Zaha Hadid, Tracey Emin, Ralph Lauren, Jeff Koons, Diane Von Furstenberg, Debbie Millman, Morphosis, Julian Schnabel, Debbie Millman, Martin Handford, Martha Stewart, Cynthia Rowley, Dain, Cost, Faust and many more.

The giant eggs have been hidden all over the city and scavenger hunt participants can download a free smartphone app which provides a map detailing the location of each egg and alerts the user when they’re getting close to one of the eggs. Participants also have the chance to win jewel-encrusted Fabergé pendants valued between $30,000 and $48,000. When the hunt ends the eggs will each be auctioned off for charity with proceeds benefitting Studio in a School and Elephant Family.
