A new gallery show opening tomorrow at Copro Gallery features the work of more than 40 emerging and established artists who were asked to reinterpret the iconic Playboy Bunny as part of the worldwide, year-long celebration of the 50th anniversary of the Playboy Bunny and the Playboy Clubs.

Several of the works in the show, "Playboy Redux II: Contemporary Artists Interpret the Iconic Playboy Bunny," were previously on display at The Andy Warhol Museum in Pittsburgh and the Rotofugi Gallery in Chicago, though the Copro show includes many new works, ranging in mediums from painting and drawing to sculpture and photography. Many of the pieces will be available for purchase for those collectors who are looking to add some Playboy mischief and creativity to their collections.

The exhibit runs December 18, 2010 to January 8, 2011; the opening reception is on the 18th from 8-11:30 p.m. and will feature live music from the Livingstons.
