After months of anticipation and excitement, the largest display of LEGO® art is finally open at
Cincinnati Museum Center. The Art of the Brick is open through May 1, 2016.
Designed to stir the imagination and inspire creativity, The Art of the Brick is the world's largest
and most elaborate display of LEGO art, featuring more than 100 works of art. The exhibit
features the work of contemporary artist Nathan Sawaya, including reimagined versions of some
of the world's most famous art masterpieces such as Van Gogh's Starry Night, Da Vinci's Mona
Lisa and a full-size Moai head statue. There are also several original pieces such as the iconic, pop
culture fan favorite Yellow, a life-size sculpture of a man ripping his chest open as thousands of
sunshine yellow LEGO bricks cascade from the cavity. Visitors will also come face-to-face with a
20-foot long T-Rex skeleton made using more than 80,000 LEGO bricks.
