LEGO: The Art of the Brick at Dscovery Times Square Expo Center
My son is obsessed with LEGOs. So I knew we had to get tickets to see The Art of the Brick.
What I didn't expect was that I might love it even more than he did (which is saying something!) I had no idea that artist Nathan Sawaya sculpted 3 dimensional LEGO brick versions of many great artworks that we have seen in museums. Or that he is a talented and original sculptor in his own right.
I am including a bunch of photos, but not everything, because photos do not do justice to these sculptures, and also because I don't want to give everything away.
Go. Be surprised! I really encourage anyone and everyone to see this exhibit. It's a fun tour through art history!
