Call for Submissions to Hartwick’s 2018 ‘Peep Show’

The annual oozy, gooey, sugary, marshmallow “Peep Show” will be held on Friday, April 6 in the Foyer of Anderson Center for the Arts on the Hartwick College campus. The yearly ode to the marshmallow treat is free, and the public is encouraged to both attend and participate.

Each spring, Hartwick College holds its Peep Show, during which all members of the College and surrounding communities are welcome to create a work of art representing, interpreting, defacing, mocking, celebrating, or analyzing the infamous marshmallow treat. Artists, friends, and Peep-lovers alike are invited to come view the art, enjoy refreshments, and attend the Awards Ceremony.

All Peep-inspired entries must be dropped off at the Anderson Center for the Arts between 9 a.m. and noon on Friday, April 6. This year’s celebrity judges are Hartwick’s Associate Director of Enrollment Communications Jennifer Nichols-Stewart and Marketing Communications Manager Chris Lott. Judging starts at 2 p.m. and a reception will begin at 3:30 p.m. The Peep-tastic Award Ceremony will commence at 4 p.m.

The Peep Show was founded in 2000 by art and art history major Becky Fullerton ’01, Lecturer in Art Kevin Gray ’01, and Professor of Art History Dr. Elizabeth Ayer.
