At the Rag Factory on Brick Lane in East End London, there will be an art exhibition revolving around the theme of rabbits and hares from the 9th of December (Private View) until the 13th of December. Artists have created pieces that are both figurative and symbolic in a range of media including photography, illustration, painting, sculpture, installation and videos.

According to the Bunny Show Committee:

The theme of the rabbit has been chosen for its playfulness as well as its establishment in mythology, symbolism and the History of Arts. As a symbol of luck, of the ambivalent, of procreation, of lust, of witchcraft and more, rabbits, source of inspiration for the participants of the show, have generated a diverse ensemble of works, from symbolic inspiration to figurative pieces of work.

The event will bring people together with work conceptual but nevertheless entertaining, inviting the audience to participate. The Bunny Show Committee believes that art is for everybody to understand and interact.

Watermelon Rabbit

I learned about this cute treat via Twitter (@GvilleRabbits, @bunE). The recipe is from the National Watermelon Promotion Board and involves some carving and some attachment of features with toothpicks. I’m a little doubtful in my ability to recreate this, but if you could do it, I think it would be a real hit at a summer party.

Get the recipe at the National Watermelon Promotion Board.

Modern Bunny Hutch

DIY Bunny Cage

Nicole from designcuriosities created this fantastic indoor hutch using repurposed furniture from Ikea.

Disappointed with the housing options available for their bunny Eames, Nicole and her boyfriend set out to make something that would complement the furniture they had. The result is a stylish and modern hutch that any bunny would be proud to call home.

Rabbit Rubbish Bins Designed by Paul Smith

Paul Smith's New London Rubbish Bin

For the “Super Contemporary” show which opened at the Design Museum in London today, fashion designer Paul Smith and 14 other artists were commissioned to “give something back” to London.

Smith focused his project on his distaste for litter. His creation is a 5-foot green rabbit holding a trash bag. When you throw garbage in the bin, the rabbit’s ears light up. Prototypes of his “New London Rubbish Bin” have been placed in Covent Gardens and Holland Park on a 4-month trial period.

I love the idea, and I hope these garbage bins end up all over the place.
