Nature Connects®: Art with LEGO® Bricks
Many of the sculptures are larger than life and highlight the interconnectivity of all living things. An oversized hummingbird and flower will demonstrate concepts of co-evolution. A centerpiece sculpture of a Monarch butterfly, built from 37,000 LEGO pieces, will draw attention to protecting the habitat of this beloved insect. In addition, this exhibition will also include a hands-on play zone where guests can build their own creations using Lego® bricks.
So, make plans now to come see us in 2020. This exhibit and related activities and demos are included with Garden admission!
