Easter egg hunt and sculpture contest | Auburn events

Easter Egg Hunt

The Auburn Noon Lions holds its annual Easter egg hunt on April 8, starting at 1 p.m. at Les Gove Park.

The hunt is open to all children up to 12 years of age, including special-needs kids, divided into four age groups. There will be several prizes scattered among the eggs, and the Easter Bunny will put in a special appearance, according to Monty Moore, president of the Auburn Noon Lions Easter Egg Hunt. There is no cost to participate.

Sculpture contest

The City of Auburn invites sculptors to submit applications for Auburn’s Downtown Sculpture Gallery.

The works selected for this public art exhibition will be on loan to the city for 12 months and can be available for sale during that time. Each selected artist will receive a $1,000 stipend.

When the exhibition closes, the city may purchase a sculpture from the exhibition for inclusion in its permanent collection. The purchase budget is $10,000.

This opportunity is open work by professional artists or artist teams living or working in the Pacific Northwest (Washington, Oregon, Idaho, California and Montana). Applicants may submit up to 10 sculptures for consideration.

The selected sculpture will be on view for 12 months from September 2023 – September 2024.

The application deadline is at 10:59 p.m. March 16. For more information and to apply, visit https://artist.callforentry.org/register.php.
