Giant illuminated rabbits invade Pyramid Hill

Thru Oct. 15, noon-10 p.m., Pyramid Hill, Hamilton

Intrude, a public art installation, makes its Midwestern debut at Pyramid Hill. The piece created by Australian artist Amanda Parer in 2014 has been seen on four continents in more than 50 cities by more than a million people.

Intrude is a spectacle-sized work consisting of five giant illuminated rabbits – the largest over 23 feet tall. Rabbits in Australia are out-of-control pests, but they also represent the fairy-tale animals from childhood.

Tickets for noon-7 p.m. viewing are $8, $3 for children, free for members; after 7 p.m., they are $10, $5 for children and members.

In addition to the rabbit invasion, hat workshops are being held through Oct. 12

Gina Scarnati, the Hollywood costume maker who created the hats in the first “Hunger Games” film, will teach hat-making workshops for makers at all skill levels.

A session for children 6-12 is free with park admission. Adult classes will be offered at the beginner, intermediate and advanced levels for $25.

Adults interested in creating a more elaborate design can register to take all three adult workshops for $65 and receive a pre-class consultation with Scarnati by email to help them  reach creative goals.

A Mad Hatter Tea Party on Friday, Oct. 13, will show off the new hat creations.

Workshop days and time vary.
