The Art of the Brick
Acclaimed art exhibition created entirely from LEGO®
An art exhibition unlike any you’ve ever seen, the The Art of the Brick at the Franklin Institute features the world’s largest collection of art created entirely from the popular toy.
The limited-time exhibition features works from artist Nathan Sawaya, who recreates famous masterpieces and original artworks using only LEGO bricks.
Hundreds of thousands of the colorful bricks are used to create the whimsical works including famous paintings like Van Gogh’s Starry Night and Leonardo DaVinci’s Mona Lisa, a Tyrannosaurus skeleton, and inspiring original works.
Named one CNN’s top “Global Must-See Exhibitions”, The Art of the Brick is only on display until September 6, 2015.
