  1. With help from artists in the community, Main Street Brenham will again bring art to the streets of downtown and invites professional, amateur and student artists to participate.
  2. Entry deadline is Monday, March 2. Online entries will be accepted at www.DowntownBrenham.com/eggartwalk or completed entry forms can be delivered to either Brenham City Hall; 200 W. Vulcan or to the Washington County Visitor Center at the Barnhill Center in Downtown Brenham.

  4. Eggs will be judged this year in three (2) categories: Adults 18+ and Student (18 and under).
  5. The base egg cut-out remains the same for all categories. The basic 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 carefully the weather and other elements of nature.
