The wildly popular Nature Connects®: Art with LEGO® Bricks is here 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.

This exhibit and related activities and demos are included with Garden admission!

Look what’s coming this March!

Adults and children of all ages are invited to experience The Art of Play exhibit coming to the Garden beginning mid-March 2020, just in time to enjoy warmer temperatures.
