PEEPS add such whimsy and frivolity for adults and children alike during springtime! If you are up for a bit of a road trip, the Racine Art Museum in Racine, Wisconsin celebrates PEEPS with a special community exhibit each spring. This year's 10th Annual International PEEPS Art Competition runs April 11-28, 2019. For this exhibit, the community is not only invited to visit but also contribute. Who can skip on this fun?

During our visit last year, we were pretty impressed by how creative and detailed some of the PEEPS Art could be. Art included vibrant wall hangings inspired by PEEPS:

As well as art incorporating the sweet treats. One of my favorites -- a PEEPS Cleopatra:

Racine Art Museum's Annual International PEEPS Art Competition is such a fun little event to welcome spring and the Easter season. Our adventure last year happened to be on one of those spring days that had snapped back to cold. We so enjoyed the afternoon exploring playful and entirely creative PEEPS art! Some of the art gets truly inventive -- all of it is fun! You also get to vote on your favorites, so keep track on your visit....
