RAM presents the thirteenth edition of the popular exhibition showcasing art made from or inspired by adorably colorful marshmallow Peeps®. This year, more than 207 artists, families, and organizations from around the country created 162 pieces of Peeps® art for the only museum competition of its kind in the world.
This show—part of the new RAM Showcase series of exhibitions—highlights contemporary artists of color whose work addresses intellectual, philosophical, and spiritual concepts through abstraction.
The unifying theme of this exhibition is that the works presented are objects—sculptural, functional, or both—made by artists from diverse backgrounds, all residing within the United States. Subject matter varies—from material exploration to personal narrative to function. While this work is not directly issue-oriented, the fact that the makers themselves, as artists of color, have experienced a wide range of implicit and explicit biases is a subcontext worthy of consideration. Seen through that lens, the story these objects tell is even more complex.
