About The Art of the Brick®
The best thing about LEGO® is the sense of possibility—you can build anything out of those little bricks. Now, come see the artist who’s built everything you’ve ever dreamed of, and more. Art of the Brick®, the world’s first exhibition of all-LEGO art, is coming to Discovery Times Square with more than 100 works of art, many never seen before.
Mastermind Nathan Sawaya left his law career to become the world’s foremost LEGO artist, pushing the envelope on what is seen as art. His sculptures use nothing but LEGO blocks—no glue, no paint, no support—transforming the humble toy into creations you have to see to believe.
There’s a 20-foot-long T. rex dinosaur skeleton and a giant LEGO skull. And then there’s one of the crowd favorites, “Yellow,” a sculpture of a man ripping his chest open. Kids will be amazed at seeing their favorite toy turned into larger-than-life characters and scenes. Adults will marvel at the artistry. And both sets might go home and dig out some LEGO blocks to play around with.
CNN called Art of the Brick one of the world’s “must-see exhibitions,” and it’s easy to see why. But the New York show is poised to be even better: Though Art of the Brick has made stops in Asia and Australia, its NYC debut is its largest show ever, with many works created just for this exhibition. Never before have so many LEGO sculptures appeared under one roof.
Visitors can go at their own pace, but plan for about an hour.
