LEGO Art In Times Square
Nathan Sawaya is living the dream of every kid – and kid at heart. The former corporate lawyer builds original, large-scale sculptures using LEGOs, and they’re absolutely breathtaking.
Sawaya’s meticulously crafted sculptures are featured in The Art of the Brick exhibit at Discovery Times Square in New York City.
“The museum exhibition is accessible because it engages the child in all of us while simultaneously illuminating sophisticated and complex concepts. Everyone can relate to the medium since it is a toy that many children have at home,” Sawaya said. His goal is to “elevate a simple plaything to a place it has never been before.”
The exhibit runs through Jan. 5, 2014.
Okay, how many of you are dialing Mom to ask whether she’s kept your childhood box of LEGOs? We won’t tell.
