Rare "Eggs of Art" Collection gets permanent home at Kress Center

A new permanent display from the Public Arts Initiative (PAI) of Egg Harbor will open this Thursday at the Donald and Carol Kress Pavilion.  The “Eggs as Art” Collection of Kathy Guillaume Beck was donated to the Village of Egg Harbor and will be permanently featured at the Kress Center for the public to enjoy.  Public Arts Initiative of Egg Harbor President Ken Mathys says the one-of-a-kind collection has over 600 eggs, with 500 of the eggs being artistic in nature having been hand-painted and carved by Beck and other artists.  He notes that about 100 of the eggs are actual wild bird eggs, including a 70 million-year-old dinosaur egg featured in the movie Jurassic Park.

 

 

The “Eggs of Art” Collection display will open officially with a free reception from 4:00 until 7:00 p.m. this Thursday, June 22.  The PAI was founded in 2010 as a committee under the Village of Egg Harbor, before eventually becoming its own non-profit organization in 2017 and working in close partnership with the village to promote the arts in the community.
