Beautiful Brick Sculptures Join Towering Topiaries in Portsmouth
Nature and art are joining together in way that is sure to delight the entire family this spring at the Green Animals Topiary Gardens in Portsmouth.
Renowned LEGO sculptor, Sean Kenney, is creating 14 all new designs to be displayed through the garden grounds, that are themselves already pretty amazing.
Now in addition to the bushes being sculpted into animals, there will be brick animals to wow over too.
LEGO is certainly having a moment in Southern New England. There was the first ever brick convention in Rhode Island last month, the LEGOland in Somerville just re-opened after a $12 million renovation and a traveling LEGO art exhibit just wrapped up a six-month run in Boston.
Now more larger-than-life LEGO displays are coming our way.
This summer, the Green Animals Topiary Gardens in Portsmouth will feature LEGO sculptures from Sean Kenney for the Nature Connects art exhibit. The purpose in this beautiful display is to show guests how everything in nature is connected, just like LEGO bricks in Kenney's art pieces.
Kenney has created 14 pieces, including a hummingbird suspended while drinking from a flower, a majestic antlered buck and a peacock with its tail feathers on full display. All the LEGO sculptures will be placed among the topiaries already amazing guests at this garden.
Plus Kenney has made one bonus sculpture of a large brick Bonsai Tree that is going to be displayed inside the welcome center at The Breakers mansion in Newport to promote the exhibit.
All these stunning works of art are definitely worth a peek for those who love LEGO, love nature or just simply love amazing works of art. And they are all on display through September 10.
