Sean Kenney’s Nature Connects Made with LEGO® Bricks, set for March 4 – May 30, features sculptures by artist Sean Kenney constructed entirely of LEGO bricks. These precisely built yet whimsical pieces are designed to inspire both the young and the young-at-heart about the natural world.

Kenney uses only standard, off-the- shelf, commercially available LEGO pieces for his sculptures – no special colors or shapes. Each piece is connected to another, and the sculptures are built within the rules of the LEGO system. The sculptures require exacting detail and countless hours – the roseate skimmer dragonfly, for example, took more than 500 hours to build, while the intricate corn spider required 135 hours.
