RACINE, Wis. (CBS 58) -- They're the marshmallows some people love or hate.

Whether you like them or not, they make some pretty good art.

The 13th Annual International Peeps Art Exhibition is back at the Racine Art Museum. It features 162 creative pieces from artists of all ages, both local and across the country.

You can also cast your vote for favorite to win the coveted "Peeples Choice" award.

"What's exciting is that the quality of these improves every year," said Jessica Zalewski of the Racine Art Museum. "We actually have a lot of people that are repeat artists, so they learn their craft. I mean their craft is making work out of Peeps, right, but they're learning things and they get more detail-oriented every year."

The Peeps Art Exhibition runs through April 23.
