The Art of the Brick has inspired and thrilled audiences from Brazil to Australia, France to Russia and Taiwan to Spain. Now, experience this “Must See” exhibition at Union Station Kansas City. This first-ever art exhibition focused exclusively on the use of LEGO bricks as an art medium is one of those rare experiences nearly impossible to describe, but so easy to love. Massive and intimate. Brilliantly simple and complex all at once. Unlike anything you’ve ever seen. Over 100 arresting creations from the mind of a contemporary art genius.
“The exhibition is accessible because it engages the child in all of us while simultaneously illuminating sophisticated and complex concepts,” Nathan Sawaya, artists, says. As a child, Sawaya – like so many of us – spent countless hours creating “masterpieces” born of his imagination. He described the experience now as one that binds us together. His breathtaking creations each begin with the simplest form – the Brick – and result in though-provoking, visceral, playful and inspired works of genius. A full 10 galleries make up this massive presentation, ending with a hands-on creation gallery in which each guest will be invited to construct their own masterpiece . . . from LEGO bricks, of course.
Did you know LEGO is a combination of Danish words Leg and Godt, which means “Play Well?” While play is an essential element for LEGO enthusiasts, the exhibition stimulates much bigger concepts rooted in science, technology, engineering, art and math (STEAM). Guests of all ages and interests find Art of the Brick fascinating. Described by one guest as “an experience that builds on itself . . . resulting in a final feeling of absolute wonder and amazement.” While another guest shared how her “sense of creativity was reawakened in a most joyful way.” Indeed, Art of the Brick has earned high praise from audiences around the globe and created a buzz across all ages who’ve dared to dream alongside Sawaya’s mind-blowing masterpieces.
