A brand new exhibit will be at the Indiana State Museum starting September 29th. The blockbuster traveling exhibit THE ART OF THE BRICK has more than 80 works of art made entirely from LEGO® bricks. Artist Nathan Sawaya has several original creations as well as LEGO brick interpretations of some of the world’s most famous art masterpieces, such as Van Gogh’s Starry Night and Da Vinci’s Mona Lisa.
A life-size sculpture of a man ripping his chest open with thousands of yellow LEGO bricks cascading from the cavity is a crowd pleaser and it will be a part of the show at the State Museum. Other “don’t miss” features are the David statue made entirely of LEGO bricks, and a 20-foot long T-Rex skeleton.
The traveling exhibit will also feature a special activity area where visitors can see what they can build for themselves using LEGO bricks.
“The goal with this collection of art is to demonstrate the potential of imagination and the power of creativity.” said Cathy Ferree, president and CEO of the Indiana State Museum and Historic Sites.
THE ART OF THE BRICK will be at the Indiana State Museum from Sept. 29, 2018, through Jan. 6, 2019, and the exhibit is included with purchase of general museum admission, which is free for members.
