RAM announces 'Peep' art competition
The Racine Art Museum is challenging local artists with a new medium this Easter ... Peeps!
Artists of all ages are invited to enter artwork inspired by the marshmallow delicacies by 5 p.m. on Friday, March 26. There's no entry fee, and fun prizes will be awarded to entries based on creativity and the best use of Peeps. Artists can use any variety of Peeps.
Works will be displayed at RAM during Easter week. Entries will not be returned. All artwork should be submitted with a super brief description or title for your entry, the names of everyone who worked on the project and their ages, and a contact email address.
Now get going artists! Maybe you could create a sculpture of a bunny Peep playing a pipe and leading a line of rats. Title? The Pied Peeper.
Or you could hollow out the bellies of a bunch of Peeps, line them up in a row so you can see through them all. When you look through them, you'd see a Peep in a bathtub. Can you guess the title? Yup, Peephole.
Alright, those are terrible ideas ... come up with better ones and get your entries into RAM! Good luck to all!
