Follow The Pink Rabbit - Art Urbane

Follow The Pink Rabbit

They call it preposterous, that’s just too insensitive – we love this pink bunny.  It should be noted that “complimentary design” includes a well intentioned contrast - PINK! The Pink Rabbit for New Orleans by artist couple, Trisha Kyner and David Friedheim, is the latest addition to the rotating art exhibition along Poydras Street in New Orleans. The 8-foot-tall, 10-foot-long bunny-shaped intruder arrived in New Orleans on Christmas Eve.

The giant, pink bunny was first created and inspired as a prop for a friend’s dance troupe.  After the performance, they decided to turn the work into a public art piece. The bright pink of the bunny was created so it didn’t blend into urban landscapes, but complimented urban environments with a bright burst of contrast – where is pink in urban design? Nowhere, except the pink bunny…

“When you’ve got a busy backdrop, you really need a color that pops. Otherwise it will disappear,” artist, Trisha Kyner said.

The artists have aspirations to continue to erect pink bunnies across the country.
