Wall Street | a tip from Rik
Wall Street is located right in front of the entrance of the Town Hall. A pop-up restaurant, where you can enjoy a delicious meal at the end of the week. A good place also to spend your Easter break. Especially for egg lovers.
Wall Street opened during Dutch Design Week 2017 and is a good example of how to deal with empty buildings in a city. This place is located in a prime location in the center but has not been in use for seven years. A group of Eindhoven people and students of Fontys changed this situation.
Now Wall Street is a place with a cosy atmosphere, good food and great exhibitions. You will also find Robot SAM here, from whom you can order a drink.
The eGGsposition opens just before Easter. "An exhibition about the egg, so to speak. To celebrate your egg fetish, because a sunny side up egg is the most beautiful shape ever, because nobody knows what was there before, because it is Easter and actually just because an egg belongs to that", says organizer Josine Beugels.
More than 25 artists from five different countries will take part, including Maxim Hartman, Helmut Smits, Tinkebell and an impressive list of Brabant heroes, including Nanda Smits, Rik van Iersel, Erik Vermeulen, Munne and Vincent Dams.
At the exhibition you will find collages, photography, drawings and poetry. All disciplines are represented. For example, there is a project by Marina Carpenter from Australia who makes an egg every day in 2018. A number of these beautiful objects have flown over for the occasion from Down Under.
The exhibition is easy to find because of the 'Sunny side up Street Egg' project. All the chewing gums sticked on the street on the route from the station to Wall Street will be transformed into sunny side up eggs for the occasion.
Of course, the kitchen of Wall Street is also inspired by the egg these days.
Come and see! Come and taste! Be ‘erbEI’!
