Last year, Hill families participated in the Eggstravaganza at Lincoln Park and community egg hunts. This year, amid the global pandemic, the Hill has a new kind of egg hunt–the window art kind, organized by the Capitol Hill Community Window Art group.
To participate, make an egg out of paper (or whatever you have around the house), and hang it in your window or on your door. Drop a pin on this map (enter your address in the search box, then click “add to map”). Then head out and see what others have created.
We are under a stay-at-home order. If your family decides to look for eggs during your allowable walks or rides, be safe! Stay at least six feet away from others.
What’s Going on With Window Art?
A Hill mom proposed a shamrock hunt on MOTH (Moms on the Hill) in mid-March, when we began social distancing around St. Patrick’s Day, and the Capitol Hill Community Window Art group was formed. Interested parents worked together on ideas for additional hunts: we did flowers, flags, baseball and basketball, April Fools and hearts. Concurrently another group organized hunts for bears and other stuffed animal displays in windows (see map here).
As families settled into their new realities, participation in the Window Art hunts dwindled (but you want to do the egg hunt, right??). If you’re interested in this community art project, request to join the Capitol Hill Community Window Art group and participate to help keep it going.
