Art of the Brick


Monday, Jan. 29 - Friday, Apr. 22

Nathan Sawaya is a New York-based artist who creates awe-inspiring works of art out of some of the most unlikely things. His recent global museum exhibitions feature large-scale sculptures using only toy building blocks, LEGO® bricks to be exact. The Art of the Brick  will be on display at the Ella Sharp Museum beginning January 30, 2016.

This award-winning exhibition created solely from standard LEGO bricks usually featuring unique sculptures to this exhibition. Each show has countless colorful LEGO pieces which Sawaya has transformed into whimsical and awe-inspiring creations.

Sawaya’s ability to transform this common toy into something meaningful, his devotion to spatial perfection and the way he conceptualizes action, enables him to elevate what almost every child has played with into the status of contemporary art.

During The Art of the Brick exhibit, admission to the Ella Sharp Museum will be ticketed.  For more information regarding admission, hours, and pricing, please contact us at 517.787.2320.
