Massive LEGO Exhibit Coming to Times Square

by Gary Pini
Nathan Sawaya's acclaimed exhibition "The Art of the Brick" is coming to Times Square! The New York-based artist had a wildly-successul show at The Morris Museum in New Jersey back in 2011 and his works are now seen in museums and public art displays around the world. Sawaya actually worked (for a short time) for the LEGO company after quitting his day job as a lawyer back in 2004. He has since built everything from a seven-foot replica of the Brooklyn Bridge to exact copies of the two lions outside of the New York Public Library on 42nd Street. The NYC show opens on June 14th at Discovery Times Square (226 West 44th Street) and it's "the largest display of LEGO art ever assembled" and includes several "never-before-seen" constructions. You can buy advance tickets ($15.50 to $20.50) HERE.
