Utah State Fair 2014 Egg Carving Interactive Exhibit
The staff of the 2014 Utah State Fair asked me to offer a demonstration of egg carving. Instead of carving eggs and having people watch me, I chose to create an interactive presentation where visitors could carve a simple design and keep the egg afterward. I think this idea worked really well. The event ran from September 5 to September 7. We had a steady flow and curious visitors which included more than 100 people stopping to try their hand. I never tire from watching people attempt carving an egg. Nearly always they begin with the thought that they will break it or they can’t do it at all. When they finish and see their project there is always a smile and often a look of surprise. I shot highlight photos from amongst the many new egg artists to share with you. A few shining stars were discovered during the event. What do you think?
