Singapore’s biggest Easter Fiesta this year will be held from 14th March to 5th April at the Sentosa HarbourFront, with lavish and indulgent nonstop themed programming bustling with activities, promotions and a wide array of entertainment programmes, from Easter brunches and staycation deals to Easter baking classes and mass egg painting events.
The Great Egg-Venture, an exhibition and egg hunt in one, will take participants of all ages across Mount Faber, HarbourFront and Sentosa Island in search of 100 giant hand painted eggs. The eggs, measuring 1.8 metres by 1 metre, have been individually designed by members of the local community, specially selected through an open egg design competition, to showcase the artists’ unique perspectives on Singapore’s celebration this year of its 50th anniversary of independence. Those who successfully complete the hunt and find all 100 of the giant eggs could stand a chance to win a host of attractive prizes. Alternatively, if you want to enjoy the eggs at a more relaxed pace, you can also simply wander through the area at your leisure and enjoy each unique creation – and perhaps indulge in some of the other exciting Easter activities along the way.
In addition to the 100 eggs that form the Giant Egg Hunt, fifty SG50 commemorative eggs have been specifically commissioned to be decorated by local and regional artists and successful professionals. Participating artists include Benedict Tan, Chee Kiong, Chef Emmanuel Stroobant, David Gan, Elim Chew, Kenny Yap, Eunice Olsen, Goh Lai Chan, Melissa Yeung, Natasha Sun I-Yu, Patrick Fiat, Sun Yu-li, Yong Cheong Thye, ChiLam, Pierre F. Patricio, Nathan Hartono, Hung Zhu An, Samantha Lo, Boo Sze Yang, Chng Seok Tin, Tan Kok Leong, Daniel Tan, Stanley Lim, Chuan Yew Eng, Teresa Tan, Ng Siang Hoi, Gregory Burns, Raymond Lau Poo Seng, Raymond Tan, Delia Prvacki, Milenko Prvacki, Debra Teng, Marcus Lim, Michael Cu Fua, Adrian Pang, and Chong Fah Cheong.
All of these unique commemorative eggs will be auctioned on the Great Egg-Venture’s website between 14th March and 5th April 2015, offering participating bidders the chance to take home their favourite sculpture. Opening bids of SGD1,000 will be called for each egg. The proceeds of the auction will go to Very Special Arts (VSA) Singapore, a charity launched in 1993 with the mission of providing individuals with disabilities the opportunity to access the arts for the purpose of rehabilitation and social integration. After the successful completion of the auction, a large charity event will take place on Saturday 18th April from 7:30pm to 10pm at S.E.A. Aquarium. Tickets for the event can be purchased from VSA.
