Guerilla Bunny Hides Eggs on Solstice Weekend

Print Story | Email Story

STOCKBRIDGE, Mass. — For the past 12 years in Stockbridge, Mass., pedestrians out for an early walk on Easter morning have found unusual, hand-painted eggs hidden around town. The delicate works of art, depicting untraditional designs in vivid colors and fine detail, are painted on empty or "blown out" whole eggshells, which are lacquered for strength. Past designs have featured dragons, Earth, Air, Fire, and Water elemental signs, Grecian Urns, Egyptian Papyrus, the Stone Age, the four seasons, plants, and flowers.

The eggs are the work of a single anonymous artist known only as the "Guerilla Bunny." Each individual egg takes two to 10 hours to paint. Once completed, their magical creator blesses them with sentience and sends them out to find their people by hiding them in public spaces. They are considered gifts of divination, magic, and inspiration for those who find them. 

Over the past 12 years, more than 1,000 of the Guerilla Bunny’s eggs have been hidden and then found in plain sight.

Due to COVID-19, the eggs were not put out on Easter this year. Instead, early on the morning of Sunday, June 21, the Guerilla Bunny's eggs were hidden in the Berkshire towns of Egremont, West Stockbridge, Great Barrington, Monterey, New Marlborough, Stockbridge, Pittsfield, Sheffield, Lee and Housatonic. In neighboring Columbia County, the eggs were hidden in Hillsdale, Ghent and Albany.

The eggs are not for sale.

The Guerilla Bunny invites finders of eggs to post their story on Facebook or Instagram. More information about the project can be found at www.guerillabunny.com.
