Yesterday, Kris and I were lucky enough to be invited by The Left Coast Mahjong, Art Show and Lego Cabal (friends of ours through Loscon) to go to “The Art of The Brick” exhibit at the California Science Center https://californiasciencecenter.org/
“The Art of the Brick” is a traveling Lego exhibition by Lego artist Nathan Sawaya.
Being an AFOL, I took over 200 pictures. But since I don’t want to blow up WordPress, I’ll just offer a few highlights. The first room held Lego recreations of classical art, from Whistler’s Mother to the Scream.
The Easter Island Head was made of 75,450 bricks. At an average of 10 cents a brick (that’s how you can tell approximately how much a set will cost) the cost of this statue would be around $7,545.00. I don’t think we’ll be seeing that as an Ultimate Collector’s Series set anytime soon.
I couldn’t help but think how cool would it be if someone built a life-size ALIEN Queen model. Someone needs to build a Sci-Fi Lego Exhibit.
It was an AWESOME day! Lego is so much more than a toy. It is an art medium. If you ever have the chance, visit one of the Legolands https://www.legoland.com/ The Minilands alone are worth the trip.
