You thought that after Peeps in movies, Peeps in D.C., Peeps in politics, Peeps in love and Peeps in pop culture, we would not utter another peep about these love-’em-or-hate’em marshmallow treats. But thanks to D.C.’s museums and galleries, Peep artists found inspiration in the arts, creating replicas of famous paintings and sculpture throughout history. Here’s a Peep lesson in art history, from the Renaissance to Abstract Expressionism to De Stijl.
