Racine Art Museum's PEEPS Art Exhibition April 11 - April 28, 2019
Within the pristine white walls of this award-winning contemporary art museum, RAM presents an untraditional exhibition showcasing fluffy, sugar-coated marshmallow PEEPS.
This spring, visitors to the show will discover artworks made with a variety of media. While the iconic seasonal candies are still the most common material, many of this year’s works will be two-dimensional paintings and works on paper, as well as innovative 3D sculptures. Last year's show included pieces like Funky Peepcock fashioned in sparkling glass beads and feathers, Pop Art Peeps crafted in glazed stoneware, and Sweet Meets Wild, an inlaid box made of different hardwoods. Inspired by inventive puns, pop culture, sports, and famous artists, many of the PEEPS art entries are by local artists, families, and organizations, however, a handful does arrive from artists out-of-state.
