The wildly popular Nature Connects®: Art with LEGO® Bricks returns with new sculptures as part of The Art of Play. Created with half-a-million LEGO bricks, the award-winning exhibit by New York artist Sean Kenney will feature 24 sculptures in 13 displays throughout the Garden.
Many of the sculptures are larger than life and highlight the interconnectivity of all living things. An oversized hummingbird and flower demonstrate concepts of co-evolution. A centerpiece sculpture of a Monarch butterfly, built from 37,000 LEGO pieces, draws attention to protecting the habitat of this beloved insect. There’s even a chance for guests to be part of the exhibit with a photo opportunity built into a mosaic of a garden scene.
