The mood on the Friday night debut of Australian artist Amanda Parer’s giant bunny exhibit at the North Carolina Museum of Art was joyous and celebratory. Crowds of parents and their kids, and art-goers gathered around the set of five gigantic 23-foot inflated and illuminated bunnies exhibit named Intrude set up on the Ellipse, part of the newly-constructed expanded campus of the art museum.
As an electronic score curated by Moogfest played in the background, kids frolicked around the bunnies, while teens and fans of the inflatable art posed for selfies on the lawn. The free exhibit runs now and until November 6, the day of the grand NCMA Park celebration. Intrude is open to the public and closes at 8 p.m. each night.
