This week The Creeping Museum and friends paid a visit to Bunnies in Baskets, a Portland nonprofit organization that trains therapy rabbits to share the magic of bunny love with the elderly, ill, disadvantaged, and lonely in the Portland community. Our very first Rabbit Rx event included rabbit therapy (a must for the stressful holiday season), life drawing with bunny models, and special bunny badges made with love for attendees by Layla.
We hope to bring you more events with Bunnies in Baskets in the new year!
Mother Nature collaborated with our Gallery artists to create a magical Yuletide display at our Little Free Library today.
This can be a difficult time of year for many of us, for lots of reasons. If you need a dose of Rabbit Rejuvenation, please join us for tea and therapy bunnies at Bunnies in Baskets in North Portland. Bring your sketchbook and enjoy life drawing with bunny models! $10 per person includes tea, cocoa, wine, snacks, and all-you-can-pet BUNNIES. 100% of this fee helps @bunniesinbaskets share the magic of bunny love with the elderly, ill, disadvantaged, and lonely in the Portland community.
Location: Bunnies in Baskets, 201 N. Alberta St., Portland, OR
Cost: $10 per person
There’s no need to buy tickets in advance, but if you could give us a heads-up if you plan to join us (comment on our Instagram post or send an email) it will help us plan for snacks.
Bunnies in Baskets is a 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization that gives people positive emotional/physical experiences through visits with highly socialized, “human curious,” and affectionate rabbits (see below).
On November 9 in a post-election state of shock, I bought a teeny tiny geode and a zine and sat down with both of them in a favorite coffee shop, because I didn’t know what else to do. Together, they were a small but much-needed band-aid for a broken heart. And ever since, I’ve been carrying the zine - All of Them Brujas by Portland artist Rebecca Artemisa - as a talisman in my bag.
Rebecca has conjured Hope Spirits, a magical new painting especially for the south-facing side of our Little Free Library. This mini-mural will be a beacon for visitors, and serve as a spell for all to find strength and power in the stories contained within the Library’s books.
You can find more of Rebecca’s work in her Etsy shop, on Instagram, or, if you’re lucky enough to be in Portland, her zines can sometimes be found in the magical Venderia machines around town.
