The Art of the Brick at Pacific Science Center

Taking Tiny to the Next Level

art of the brickThey may just be the most popular toy of all time… in fact, if you’re like most of us you’ve built with them, created with them, and let’s face it stepped on them (OUCH!!!).  They’re LEGOS!  But what happens when you take these little building blocks to the next level?  Artist Nathan Sawaya has the answer at The Art of the Brick, named one of CNN’s Top Ten “Global Must-see Exhibitions.”

art of the brickThe world’s largest display of LEGO art ever is showing now through September 11th at the Pacific Science Center and it will amaze you.  You’ll see some of the world’s most renowned art masterpieces made completely from Legos- like Da Vinci’s Mona Lisa, a 20-foot-long T-Rex and Van Gogh’s Starry Night.  There’s also a gallery that showcases “brick-infused photography” from award-wining photographer Dean West.

What others are saying:

“Although it was named as a must-see by CNN, I’m here to tell you guys that you HAVE to see it. It is amazing for both kiddos and adults, and will blow your mind.”
