The Art of the Brick
THE ART OF THE BRICK is a global touring exhibition rated by CNN as one of the world's "Must See Exhibitions." These are the first art exhibitions to focus exclusively on the use of LEGO® bricks as an art medium and artist Nathan Sawaya has taken it to new heights.
This award-winning artist has multiple unique exhibitions created solely from standard LEGO bricks often with several new sculptures created specifically for each exhibition. Each show has countless colorful LEGO pieces which Sawaya has transformed into whimsical and awe-inspiring creations.
Sawaya’s ability to transform this common toy into something meaningful, his devotion to spatial perfection and the way he conceptualizes action, enables him to elevate what almost every child has played with into the status of contemporary art.
“These works are very personal to me, since they reflect my growth as an artist as I strove to discover my creative identity,” said Sawaya. “The museum exhibition is accessible because it engages the child in all of us while simultaneously illuminating sophisticated and complex concepts. Everyone can relate to the medium since it is a toy that many children have at home. But my goal with this exhibition when it first debuted in 2007 was to elevate this simple plaything to a place it has never been before.”

Some amazing pieces :-)
3 January 2020
Worth a visit if you love Lego. I was hoping to inspire my boys into building with Lego again. However, I don't think it has. As a family of 4, we all enjoyed the artwork on display, but for the price, I expected there to be something more (although not sure what). Walking around the whole exhibition took a little over 30 minutes. There was some amazing pieces, and I was especially impressed with the artwork. For instance, there was a Mona Lisa (amongst other famous paintings), made out of Lego pieces, and if you looked at it with the naked eye it looked like it had been made with Lego. However, when you looked at it through the lens of a camera, the definition was much clearer. i would recommend a visit, but just wished it cost a bit less for the privilege.
