NATURE CONNECTS®: ART WITH LEGO® BRICKS
June 28 - September 22| $8 – $13
A giant praying mantis made with 42,164 LEGO pieces; a pristine lily created with rare pink LEGO pieces; a sculpture of a snake and a mouse exploring relationships between pray and predator: these are just a few of the sculptures on display at Lewis Ginter Botanical Garden June 28 – September 22, 2019, as part of Nature Connects®: Art with LEGO® Bricks. Created with half-a-million LEGO bricks, the award-winning exhibit by New York artist Sean Kenney will feature 24 sculptures in 13 displays throughout the Garden. Cost is included in regular Garden admission.
Many of the sculptures are larger than life and highlight the interconnectivity of all living things. For example, an oversized hummingbird and flower demonstrate concepts of co-evolution. A centerpiece sculpture of a Monarch butterfly and milkweed draws attention to protecting the habitat of Monarchs. There’s even a chance for guests to be part of the exhibit with a photo opportunity built into a mosaic of a garden scene. Fittingly, Lewis Ginter Botanical Garden’s passion is connecting people and plants to improve our community.
