THE ART OF THE BRICK to Return to Discovery Times Square
Back by popular demand, Discovery Times Square is proud to announce the encore return of the captivating LEGO brick exhibition, THE ART OF THE BRICK. After welcoming an unprecedented number of visitors during their 2013 run, the world's biggest and most elaborate display of art created from LEGO bricks will return to New York City's Discovery Times Square on February 14, 2014. Tickets to see THE ART OF THE BRICK, which showcases a collection of creative and inspiring art, constructed using only LEGO toy bricks by renowned contemporary artist Nathan Sawaya, are on sale now.
THE ART OF THE BRICK brings to life Sawaya's one-of-a-kind pieces of art, including an impressive T-Rex dinosaur skeleton and the iconic pop-culture favorite "Yellow"--a life-size sculpture of a man ripping his chest open with thousands of sunshine-yellow LEGO bricks cascading from the cavity. The exhibit, one of the most successful exhibitions held at Discovery Times Square, is the largest collection of LEGO art ever on display showcasing more than 100 creations, including 50 stunning replicas of some of the most famous works of art throughout history, like Van Gogh's Starry Night and Da Vinci's Mona Lisa. Prior to opening in NYC, the critically acclaimed collection of creative and inspiring art - named by CNN as one of the Top 10 "must see exhibitions" in the world - achieved record-breaking runs in Singapore, Taiwan, and Australia.
"I am grateful that there is so much demand for the art that we are returning to New York City," said artist Nathan Sawaya. "I create and share my art to inspire others, and to take LEGO where it has never been before. Now more people will have the opportunity to experience THE ART OF THE BRICK and see LEGO bricks in a new light."
On its heralded return to New York City, THE ART OF THE BRICK will also feature a newly introduced gallery that showcases Sawaya's In Pieces collection, a multimedia collaboration produced in tandem with award-winning photographer Dean West.
