Giant LEGO Art Exhibit, The Art of the Brick, Makes SoCal Debut at Fleet Science
The Art of the Brick, a giant LEGO art exhibit, makes it’s SoCal debut at Fleet Science Center in San Diego’s Balboa Park! The exhibition features creations made with over a million LEGO bricks, by contemporary New York artist, Nathan Sawaya.
CNN has named this giant LEGO art exhibit one of their Top Ten “Global Must-See Exhibitions.” The Art of the Brick first debuted in 2007, but this is its first showing in Southern California.
The exhibit features reimagined LEGO versions of notable pieces, such as Moai, Van Gogh’s Starry Night, and the Egyptian Sphinx. It also showcases completely unique pieces imagined by Sawaya.
Aside from the giant LEGO art creations, the exhibit also showcases a “LEGO brick-infused” multimedia collection by photographer Dean West. Fleet guests also have the opportunity to build their own LEGO creation in the Fit-A-Brick Building Zone.
The Art of the Brick runs at Fleet Science Center from September 30th 2016 – January 29th, 2017. This giant LEGO art exhibition requires a timed entry ticket, separate from entry to the museum. Fleet Science members may purchase tickets for a discount. Be sure to review further details about the exhibition on the official Fleet Science Center Website. Perhaps we’ll see you there!
