Each year, the show's popularity draws over 3,000 visitors to the museum during its three-week run, setting daily attendance records along the way. This spring, visitors will discover creations such as PEEPerweight featuring a hand-blown glass PEEP, Peepwee Herman's Playhouse, and an entry from a local Racine business entitled Lakeview Pharmacy Peepscription.


All entries are judged by a panel of experts, based on creativity and best use or representation of PEEPSŪ. Prizes will be awarded in both adult and children's categories and announced Thursday night during the Artist Reception and Awards Ceremony. In addition, one lucky artist will take home the coveted PEEPles Choice Award where the community votes for their favorite creation.


Enjoy FREE admission during First Friday in Downtown Racine on April 3, from 10:00 am to 9:00 pm. No Free Family Hands-On Art Activity will be offered.


Visitors to the museum can vote for their favorite PEEPS work of art through Sunday, April 12. For more information about this exhibition, please visit www.ramart.org or call 262.638.8300.
