Peep shows are not only fun to view, but also educational. The exhibit program noted:
Americans ate more than 600 million Marshmellow Peeps and Bunnies this Easter.Peeps®, which are like marshmellows with some extra sugar decoration, have the following ingredients:
sugar, corn syrup, gelatin, and less than 0.5% potassium sorbate (a preservative), natural flavors, Red #3 (dye), and Carnauba wax.Play with this "food," don't eat it. Peep shows help to teach children and adults the difference between colorful toys and real, truly satisfying food.
Above is a photo of one of the finest peep scenes in Artisphere's peep show. It's "Escalator Collapse at Peepy Bottom Station," by Elliot Seibert and Claudine Roshanian. It re-presents the escalator collapse at Foggy Bottom Metro Stop on Feb. 18, 2011. Rosslyn's escalators fortunately have been performing impressively.
