RAM 7th Annual International PEEPS Art Exhibition

March 18 – April 3, 2016

Within the pristine white walls of a contemporary art museum, RAM presents an untraditional exhibition showcasing art made from or inspired by fluffy, sugarcoated marshmallow PEEPS®. This year, the museum welcomes 123 entries that demonstrate the talent of 154 artists.

Each year, the show’s popularity draws over 3,000 visitors to the museum during its three-week run, setting daily attendance records along the way. This spring, visitors will discover creations such as Peep Kong Attacks Racine showcasing the city’s architecture, Peeptarts with toaster, and an entry from local Girl Scout Troop 9113 entitled Peepdora.
