Leslie Perrino—Peeps Bunny Figurine
Racine-based artist Leslie Perrino created this free-standing figurine depicting a colorfully adorable marshmallow Peep® in celebration of the RAM 13th Annual International Peeps Art Exhibition. This little metal bunny is crafted with a slot that fits an accompanying stand, making it a breeze to prop up and display the Peep® anywhere in your house!
