Easter Eggs on Parade

The beloved bunnies will not be hopping around 2022 Charlotte SHOUT!, but they have left a special surprise for us at Romare Bearden Park, giant eggs! 12 giant eggs will be placed in Romare Bearden Park for the entirety of the festival, and we are looking for 12 local artists to each decorate an egg. 

Each egg is made of fiberglass and stands 48” tall and 36” diameter and sit on a solid base. We all know of the beautiful, bejeweled eggs. We want to see your take on your very own giant egg. Apply to participate in Charlotte SHOUT! and show us your version of a timeless, bejeweled egg on our giant canvas. Learn more about Easter Eggs on Parade by reviewing our Call to Artists. 

Applications are open January 24 through February 14 at 5pm EST.  More information here.
