Last weekend, the California Science Center premiered its newest exhibit – the Art of the Brick! Featuring over 100 works of art created from over one million LEGO bricks by artist Nathan Sawaya, a former corporate lawyer.
My daughter and I were invited to a special viewing for media last Sunday and we were SO impressed with the scale and design of the artwork. It’s truly a must-see!
A few years back, my parents went to the Louvre Museum in Paris and saw the Mona Lisa. Visiting Paris is on my bucket list, but until then, I’m content with seeing this work of art made solely of LEGOs!
And also these items…
Can you believe this replica of the Easter Island Head is made entirely of LEGOs? Although your kids probably recognize it as the Talking Head in “Night at the Museum.”
Not only are there replicas of classic pieces, but there’s modern art as well.
Check this out…see the framed photo behind me featuring a person holding a red umbrella? Yup, that’s the umbrella that I’m pretending to hold!
See the lady in red in this photo?
Now here’s the red dress made entirely of LEGOs!
LEGO fans of all ages will want to see this exhibit in-person at the California Science Center! Not only will you and your family get to see great images of art (and take selfies too), but at the very end of the exhibit there’s a hands-on “The Science of the Brick” gallery that features LEGO brick building challenges and activities. It’s included with your exhibition ticket.
The Art of the Brick will be on display through September 7, 2020.
