Intrude, one of the most highly acclaimed major public art installations in the world, will make its MidWest debut this October at Pyramid Hill. This imaginative piece was created by Australian artist Amanda Parer in 2014 and has since been seen on four continents, in over 50 cities by over a million people.
Intrude is a spectacle-sized work consisting of five giant illuminated rabbits—the largest over 23 feet tall. Rabbits in Parer’s native Australia are out of control pests, but also represent the fairytale animal from our childhood. Intrude deliberately evokes this image to lure you into the artwork only to reveal the more serious environmental messages behind it. Exciting programs have been developed to attract knowledge and experience seekers alike. The park will have a Hoppy Hour, a Hip Hop Night, a bunny-themed art exhibit by local artists, bunny-themed crafts for children, hat making workshops with a Hollywood costume designer, Mad Hatter themed tea party and more. Two of the bunnies will complete their MidWest appearance at the Blink Festival from October 12-15. The only way to see the show in its entirety is at Pyramid Hill, October 6 - 11.
