Call for Artists: Enter RAM's Sixth Annual

The Coveted 2013 PEEPles Choice Award Announced


The Racine Art Museum's Third Annual International PEEPS┬« Competition drew over 3,000 visitors to the museum during its three-week run, setting daily attendance records along the way. RAM invited artists of all ages to participate in the only museum competition of this kind in the world. Visitors to RAM enjoyed a riot of electric pastels and a chance to cast their vote for their favorite creative PEEPS« pieces.


The votes for the coveted PEEPles Choice Award have been tallied. The winner is Peeps Porridge by Patricia Roberson. Her creation captured well over 10% of museum visitors' votes. This year, every PEEPS« entry, 65 in total, had a PEEPles Choice vote. Roberson will be awarded a Longaberger PEEPS« Basket along with a RAM family membership.
