Eggstravaganza Art Show & Auction
So, what is Eggstravaganza?
Each year, hundreds of ceramic eggs are transformed into works of art and then auctioned off to raise funds for the Outreach Program of Old Town Artisan Studios. The EGGStra-spectacular collection features artists from our local community, as well as artists from across the nation. The show is presented both online and in person, in the Leland Gallery on our campus.
The best part of Eggstravaganza? It is ALL for a good cause! Hundreds of talented artists partner with us to help spread art enrichment throughout the Coachella Valley. 100% of the proceeds are used to fund our extensive outreach art programs. By participating in the auction, your donations go directly to serving afterschool programs, special needs classes, activities for people with disabilities, and more. Within the last two years (even through a global pandemic), we have been able to provide over 50,000 art experiences to our local community! So be sure to check back soon for more information about the eggs-illerating Eggstravaganza Art Show and Auction of 2023!

For Eggstravaganza 2022, we added a little something new…
In March 2022, we loaded our Mobile Art vans with supplies and led a class at the Boys and Girls Club of Mecca. The students were each given a ceramic egg (just like the official auction artists) to decorate with glazes. It was a blast! What a joy to see a young artist emerge from each child.
Once fired at our studios, the marvelous creations were then displayed in the Leland Gallery for all to see! But that wasn’t all… The students then got to take a field trip to our campus and view their beautiful work in person! Once the auction ended, their marvelous creations were returned to the students to enjoy.
Our unique Mobile Mission is at the core of our mission work, bringing art adventures all over the Coachella Valley at little to no cost to the student. To learn more, click here!
