Nothing says Easter louder than PEEPS! PEEPS are great, sweet Easter treat on their own but they also make for festive and bright accoutrements to desserts and even whimsical pieces of art! In fact, the Racine Museum of Art has a fun yearly PEEPS Art Exhibition that is a delightful family tradition for the Easter season.

The RAM International PEEPS Art Exhibition has been a part of Easter fun for the past 8 years. The exhibit engages the community not only in perusing PEEPS-inspired art but encourages area artists of all ages and levels to create and submit their own PEEPS masterpieces! Here is how you can join the fun:
