RACINE, Wis.— Sometimes art doesn’t require a paintbrush— instead it just needs a marshmallow peep. That is the case for over 130 different works of art currently on display at the Racine Art Museum. Now in its 12th year, the International PEEPS Art Exhibition is underway.

From a marshmallow Bernie Sanders, to a Peep-a-rama machine, if artists can dream it up, you will find it on display. Those who work hard to put it together say the creativity they see each year never ceases to amaze them. Lisa Englander with the Racine Art Museum says it always puts a smile on people’s faces.

“They come up with like 150 different ideas every year. We have very little repetition and if we do have repetition it looks completely different. It is a different interpretation on a theme,” says Englander

This year multiple submissions have a pandemic related theme, including a peep vaccine clinic to a peep Zoom meeting.

The Peep art exhibit runs through April 10th at the museum. If you would like more information, you can visit the Racine Art Museum’s website.
