THUMBS UP: Vivian Davis outdid herself, and the rest of the field consisting of more than 150 pieces of Peep-inspired art, to take the grand prize at the 10th annual PEEPshow at the Carroll Arts Center with her entry, “Mother of (Peeps) Dragons.” It was no small feat. Her piece stood 81/2 feet tall with a 6-foot wingspan and featured more than 5,000 Peeps. More than 25,000 visitors took in this year’s PEEPshow. Between in-person and online voting, Davis’ sculpture received 7,702 votes, the most in the contest. She said she began working on the dragon’s armature after Christmas, but didn’t apply her first Peep to the final piece until March 14, spending more than a few 8-hour work days getting her work of art ready to be viewed. “It was the 10th year,” she told us, “I wanted to make something really big to honor it.” That she did. And for her efforts, she received a giant plush bunny; a special VIPeeps visit to Just Born, the maker of PEEPS in Bethlehem, Pennsylvania; and an overnight stay at the Historic Hotel Bethlehem. Not to mention the appreciation of PEEPshow fans.
