Riverfront Arts Center will take submissions for a popular candy-themed art exhibit on March 31.

The public is invited to submit their sweet dioramas for the 13th annual “Peeps With Your Peeps” exhibit, which kicks off April 9.

Artists are encouraged to use their imagination and skills to create a diorama, a picture, a sculpture, or other work of art using marshmallow Peeps, a longtime staple in kid’s Easter baskets. Peeps can be used with non-edible items, but all displays must be family-friendly.

Each person is limited to two entries, and all entries have a $5 free. Submissions are due at the Riverfront Arts Center between 11 a.m. and 4 p.m. on March 31. Entry forms are available at the Riverfront Arts Center, 1200 Crosby Ave. or at StevensPoint.com/RAC.

The exhibit is open April 9-23 but will close on April 12 for Easter Sunday.

The Riverfront Arts Center is open to the public and free of charge. Exhibit hours are Tuesday-Friday, 11 a.m. to 5 p.m. and Saturday and Sunday 11 a.m. to 3 p.m.
