Contest Guidelines

  2. The entry deadline is Sunday, February 26th. Online entries will be accepted at https://cityofbrenham.online/spring-eggs, or completed entry forms can be delivered to Brenham City Hall (200 W. Vulcan Street) or Washington County Visitor Center at The Barnhill Center in Downtown Brenham.

  4. This year, eggs will be judged into two (2) categories - Adults 18+ and Students (under 18 yrs old)
  5. The base egg cut-out remains the same for all categories. The egg can be altered as long as it remains intact.
  6. Objects may be attached to the egg but should be attached in a way that cannot be easily removed.
  7. Artists are encouraged to use creativity and innovation but should remember that this is a public art exhibition, and the audience will be broad-based and of all ages. Designs that are violent or sexual in nature will not be accepted.
  8. The Spring Eggs Art Walk is an interactive event, and as such, designs should be created with durability and public safety concerns in mind.
  9. The eggs will be displayed outdoors, so in creating a design, please consider the weather and other elements of nature carefully. Eggs need to be weighted with sandbags or other items.
  10. The back of the finished egg must be painted. Main Street Brenham will supply signage that will include the artist's name and the name of the egg.
