DALLAS (AP) – A 40-foot-high Playboy bunny logo that had upset some residents of the West Texas town of Marfa will be removed from a roadside art display and hauled to a Dallas museum.
The neon bunny that’s part of the “Playboy Marfa” sculpture will be dismantled this month and moved to the Dallas Contemporary museum near the city’s downtown. The move is the result of a deal with the Texas Department of Transportation.
The bunny will be installed at the museum in March and displayed in April.
Museum officials say it will be part of an exhibition highlighting art by Richard Phillips, who created the neon piece.
The sculpture debuted last summer in Marfa, but Texas transportation officials said it lacked an outdoor billboards permit and ordered Playboy to remove it.
