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.
A big bumblebee weighing 60 pounds; a dramatic dragonfly with a three-and-a-half-foot wingspan; and a soaring seven-foot-tall red rose: these are just a few of the sculptures on display at Lewis Ginter Botanical Garden as part of Nature Connects®: Art with LEGO® Bricks.
Many of the sculptures are larger than life and highlight the interconnectivity of all living things. For example, an oversized hummingbird and flower demonstrate concepts of co-evolution. A centerpiece sculpture of an Eastern tiger swallowtail butterfly, built from 37,000 LEGO pieces, draws attention to protecting the habitat of Virginia’s State 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.
Cost is included in regular Garden admission.
