Guards hop to it, huge rabbit artwork gets 24/7 security

SAN FRANCISCO (AP) — Several large illuminated rabbits installed at San Francisco’s Civic Center Plaza will have round-the-clock security until the exhibit comes down this month.

San Francisco television station KPIX reports Monday that the giant inflatable bunnies are part of a public art installation.

To prevent the kind of vandalism that hit Super Bowl 50 artwork earlier this year, the bunnies will get 24-hour security until the exhibit ends April 25.

The two-story art piece titled “Intrude” by Australian artist Amanda Parer toured much of the world before arriving at the steps of City Hall.

Kate Patterson of the San Francisco Arts Commission says the exhibit is ideal because it’s in a space where people can come and enjoy it and “take what they want from it.”
