    Make an original shoebox-sized diorama with the iconic Easter candies—PEEPS!—as the main characters.    Community members of all ages, businesses, school classrooms, groups & organizations are all encouraged to enter.  Take cues from current events, pop culture, or clever “peeps”  puns—just get creative!  The  public will be welcome to come adore these sugary confection masterpieces in-person in the gallery again this year, but with some social distancing modifications in place.  Prizes!  See libraryartscenter.org for Peeps Swag.
