RAM 11th Annual International PEEPS Art Competition
April 2 @ 10:00 am - 5:00 pm
An event every week that begins at 10:00 am on Thursday, repeating until April 19, 2020
Within the pristine white walls of this award-winning contemporary art museum, RAM presents an untraditional exhibition showcasing fluffy, sugarcoated marshmallow PEEPS® will begin its eleventh year within the award-winning contemporary architecture of the Racine Art Museum.
Over the years, many entrants have been become experts in marshmallow candy as a material, using methods like carving, painting, hole punching, gluing, and melting to manipulate PEEPS into incredible shapes. Last year’s show, Richard W. Marklin, Jr. melted a flock of PEEPS to make Raul the Rooster, a realistic barnyard bird; while April Harris and Autumn Kyle assembled the holiday treats into a bust of Black Panther Peeper.
The Artist Preview and Awards Ceremony for this highly-anticipated exhibition will be held at RAM on Wednesday, April 1, from 5:30 – 7:30 pm. Awards presentation will be at 6:00 pm.
