Egg-cellent - Whittaker's Big Egg Hunt
The Whittaker’s Big Egg Hunt – the first event of its kind in the southern hemisphere – invited the public to find 100 giant eggs hidden across a number of cities created by local artists and designers, including Dick Frizzell, John Pule, Max Gimblett, Greg O’Brien, Karl Maughan, David Trubridge, Nigel Brown, Seraphine Pick, John Reynolds, Dame Trelise Cooper, Denise L’Estrange-Corbet, Askew and many others.
Many eggs were finished in Resene paints, a vivid reminder that all you need is imagination and courage to create something remarkable with paint. With daily clues, some of the eggs found themselves ‘in hiding’ in Resene ColorShops.
All 100 eggs, each a unique masterpiece, were auctioned off for the Starship Foundation, a charity supporting the national children’s hospital to provide world-leading care for almost 120,000 patient visits each year.
The Big Egg Hunt concept first came about in London in 2012 to engage the public in a fun and interactive way while fundraising for charity. And now the Easter Bunny has travelled to the other side of the world for the latest hunt.
