The wildly popular Nature Connects®: Art with LEGO® Bricks is coming to Norfolk Botanical Garden for the first time beginning January 17, 2020 and will run through June 7th. Created with half-a-million LEGO bricks, the award-winning exhibit by New York artist Sean Kenney will feature 13 displays throughout the Garden.

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!

Opening Weekend January 18 & 19

In addition to the Nature Connects® Art with LEGO® Bricks 16 giant sculptures, the Hampton Roads LEGO® User Group (HARDLUG) will join us for a 2 day in-door event in Rose Garden Hall from 9am to 5pm.

Enjoy demonstrations and Kids of ALL ages – come join in and create your own works of art using LEGO® Bricks!
