Art of the Brick Exhibition Opening
Admission: $12.00 (standard museum admission) / Free for members
Playing with LEGO® blocks will take on a whole new meaning to visitors of the upcoming The Art of the Brick exhibition at OMSI. Opening March 17 for a limited six-week run, the new exhibit will feature large-scale sculptures created exclusively out of LEGO toy building blocks by well-known artist Nathan Sawaya. LEGO stylings from other local artists will also be on display, along with a variety of hands-on activities, demonstrations and challenges.
Sawaya’s creations comprise one of the largest and most popular art exhibits currently touring the world. Based in New York City but raised in Veneta, Oregon, Sawaya transforms the popular plastic construction toy into amazing showcases of creativity, innovation and fine art.
