Cuddle up to a cottontail and heart some art at the Torpedo Factory Art Center’s BunnyFest, celebrating rabbits, hoppy harbringers that leave Winter with pep in their step.
Don bunny ears and doo-wop some hip-hop to see rabbit-riffic artwork in progress, including ceramic sculptures, high-fire dishware, etchings and paintings. Make BunnyFest buttons, create bunnyCrafts with those who give a whisker about stuff with fluff. Mug with Bugs and visit with adoptable rabbits from the Friends of Rabbit Rescue and Sanctuary of the Washington D.C./Baltimore area.
Factory artists have been lounging with lagomorphs and will be showing and selling high-eared art. Thinking outside the Easter basket, Factory artists Tracie Griffith Tso (Studio 22 and 19), Lisa Schumaier (Keenthings Studio 16) and Betty Grisham (Studio 17) create handmade original work with bounce.
“BunnyFest” runs Saturday, April 15 11 a.m. to 5 p.m.
