Must See Boston Art Exhibit Spotlights Love of LEGO
What do millions of LEGO bricks used to make stunning sculptures look like? You can find out this weekend when a one-of-a-kind LEGO art show rolls into Boston.
Artist Nathan Sawaya has created over 70 sculptures entirely of LEGO for a traveling exhibit known as The Art of the Brick and starting this Friday, November 18 it will be on display and filling a gallery space at 343 Newbury Street until April 23, 2023.
Sawaya is not new to creating epic art out of LEGO bricks. In 2014 he brought a smaller version of this show to sold out crowds at Faneuil Hall. Since then his artwork has expanded and he has traveled with it ti more than 100 cities in 26 countries across six continents.
Lucky for us in New England, the LEGO artwork is back and better than ever.
Starting Friday LEGO lovers young and old can see Sawaya's take on Michelangelo’s David, Van Gogh’s Starry Night and Da Vinci’s Mona Lisa as well as original sculptures including a 20-foot tall T-Rex.
Be ready to look in all directions when you see this show, because Sawaya leaves no space empty and in some cases lets the viewer become part of the artwork.
This immersive LEGO experience arrives at the perfect time too, considering LEGOland Boston is closed for some major renovations.
I know my LEGO loving kids will be thrilled with the life-sized artwork created entirely from tiny bricks and with the exhibit in town through April, there is plenty of time to head up and see it.
Tickets are on sale now at the Art of the Brick website and keep scrolling to get a taste of the stunning sculptures you'll get to see when you go.
