Did the weekend leave you feeling EGG-static?Did you have a HOP-ening time? Perhaps a little cottontail or two bounced by and left you some yummy treats hidden in eggs. One thing is certain, the DMA’s galleries are overflowing with bunny foo foos and rascally rabbits this spring! You’d best look quick—they are bound to be springing from one painting to the next, scooping up field mice and bopping them on the head.
