myplasticheart and Peter Kato are proud to present Bedtime Stories - A Custom Bedtime Bunnies Exhibition, the first custom exhibition of Bedtime Bunnies which opens on July 11th. For those unfamiliar, Bedtime Bunnies are an original character series created and designed by Peter Kato, depicting an adorable rabbit wearing bunny slippers. Specifically made for this exhibition is the 4.5 inch version of the character, which will be hand-painted and modified by over 30 artists, all exploring the theme of bedtime stories and asked to revisit some of their favorite classic fairytales.
It has been one full year since the bunnies debuted, and — many colors, variations, and forms later — Bedtime Stories explores the many varieties of bunnies, whether imbuing them with elements from a fairytale or fable or nursery rhyme. These pieces bring us back to our childhood and let us recall our memories of stories and storytelling, each custom Bedtime Bunny telling it's own story and giving us a glimpse into each artist's childhood inspiration.
