Ever-popular Peeps exhibit back at Racine Museum

Posted: Updated:
RACINE (AP) -- The Racine Art Museum has opened its most popular community event: an annual Peeps exhibit that centers around the marshmallow candies shaped as bunnies or chicks.
  
A Journal Times of Racine report says more than 100 exhibits have been submitted by artists and amateurs. The show opened Friday and runs for three weeks.
  
Museum spokeswoman Laura Gillespie says last year's event drew 4,000 people. She says after winter, everybody needs a blast of color.
  
This year's entries include Peeps made up to look like the Beatles and another display representing the choir of a Caledonia elementary school.
  
Eleven-year-old Alissa Burke made an exhibit of brightly colored Peep flowers called, "Boupeep." She says the effort took her five hours to make.
