The Art of the Egg
10th Annual Egg Decorating Contest
It's that time of year again when the Evergreen Downtown Business Association (EDBA) hosts the annual egg decorating contest to bring our community together in a spirit of creativity. Professionals, kids and adults use their creativity and imagination to design eggs-traordinary eggs. One silent auction party will be held, along with a month-long display of the eggs, to encourage the public to explore our historic downtown in one of our typically slower shopping times.
Here are the Plans:
1. Name Change:
We changed the contest name a year ago to "The Art of the Egg" (Downtown Evergreen's 10th Annual Egg Design Contest). This unique medium should reflect the professional and amateur, artistic talent the contest warrants. We are not just dying Easter eggs. It's a true, eclectic art exhibit, in miniature, with the starting point of creation being a 3-dimensional blank egg-shaped canvas. Artists of all ages contemplate their egg design all year long!
2. (NEW this year) One Finale Silent Auction Party:
There will NOT be a Kick-off Party this year, however the eggs will be on display at Evergreen National Bank for one week from April 3-7. On April 7, the amateur eggs will be moved to The Evergreen Gallery and the professional eggs will be moved to Main Street Fine Art Gallery. Closing Silent Auction Party - Thursday, April 20th @ Main Street Fine Art Gallery 6 - 7:30 pm
3. Sponsor Poster: A large poster will be displayed at Evergreen National Bank with all Sponsors' names from April 3-20.
4. Egg Labels:
The labels on the Professional Egg Display will feature the Sponsor, Artist and Egg Name while they are showcased at Evergreen National Bank and Main Street Fine Art Gallery.
5. Name Tags at the Final Party:
A name tag will be provided at the door to every sponsor and artist attending the party. Each name tag will reflect the sponsor name, artist name and egg name. abels on the Professional Egg Display will feature the Sponsor, Artist and Egg Name while they are showcased at Evergreen National Bank and Main Street Fine Art Gallery.
6. Downtown Evergreen Website:
Your website/Facebook link will be added to the www.downtownevergreen.com website.
7. Facebook: You will be thanked on our Heart of Evergreen Facebook page ...
8. Advertising: Ads will be run in Serenity Magazine and the Canyon Courier.
