Mission Statement

In April 2014 a high-profile charitable art event will take place in New York City - The Faberg Big Egg Hunt. Three hundred giant egg installations by leading artists, designers and jewelers will make this an arts based project incorporating and associating with some of the most important names in the field and aiming to bring an exciting and creative energy to New York City, for which all proceeds will go to the charities involved.

This year’s event benefits two not-for-profit organizations: Studio in a School instigates art classes in schools in low-income areas of NYC and The Elephant Family works to protect the endangered Indian Elephant among other threatened animals and habitats. Please visit www.studioinaschool.org and www.elephantfamily.org to learn more about our charities.
