Nature Connects: Art with LEGO Bricks

Open Daily until November 26, 2017

 

Nature Connects is an award-winning, record-breaking exhibition now touring North America. Created with over a half million LEGO pieces, this show features larger-than-life sculptures built with LEGO bricks by Brooklyn artist and children’s author Sean Kenney.

The sculptures bring nature to life with a 6-foot hummingbird hovering over a trumpet flower, a deer family made from 84,000 bricks, a giant tortoise, a 7-foot long dragonfly and more. This spectacular combination of nature and art will be featured outdoors in the Conservation Garden and other outdoor areas.

Created in partnership with Iowa State University, Nature Connects is foremost an educational platform and secondarily a means of artistic expression.

The exhibit will be located in the Virginia Living Museum Conservation Garden where you can not only view the 16 amazing sculptures, you can enter a “castle themed” Big Block Build Zone and sit on a throne made of blocks (photo op). A  LEGO® BRICK Creation Station will also put guests’ creativity to the test along with age level building competitions and activities.
