Art of the Brick

Calling all LEGO lovers! Tampa, Florida and Midland, Michigan are current hosts to an art exhibition that should not be missed.

There’s no doubt that we’ve all enjoyed these colorful building bricks as children, whether to construct one of the many themed sets or trying to craft our own exquisite masterpiece. While the LEGO building aspirations remained in childhood for most of us, artist Nathan Sawaya has taken it to a whole new level with his The Art of the Brick traveling exhibition.

I had the privilege of checking out the exhibit while it was on display in Philadelphia and it was, in a word, awesome! The moment I walked in, a huge smile spread across my face and I recalled fond memories of the many hours I spent creating and enjoying my many LEGO sets. From famous art pieces, to dinosaurs, and many sculptures created specifically for each exhibition location, you will be in awe of the creativity that Sawaya has extracted from such a simple toy. Should you find yourself in the Tampa or Midland areas in the next few weeks, do yourself a favor and take an afternoon to be transported back to your childhood!
