The Art of the Brick

While Kat and I were touring around Pensacola during our recent visit to Florida for the Hangout Music Festival that takes place in Gulf Shores, Alabama each year, I saw that the Pensacola Museum of Art had a LEGO® exhibit.

When I was a kid (heck I still look at various LEGO® sets when I am at the store) I played with LEGOs® all the time, I used to spend all my allowance on them and eventually had a huge tub of various LEGO® parts at one point. With all that being said I knew I had to try to visit this installment if I had a chance as I wasn’t sure if I would get a chance to see it in the near future.

The exhibit “The Art of the Brick” is an art installment from the New York based artist Nathan Sawaya. Nathan is a full time independent artist who has been creating LEGO® sculptures since around 2002.

If you are in the Pensacola area I would suggest heading over to the Pensacola Museum of Art before the exhibit has run its course. It is currently running from May 4th until August 8th, 2014.
