Art of the Brick: LEGO Eye Candy Arrives in Times Square

Read next

What’s closer than LEGOLAND Discovery Center Westchester and less likely to result in budget-busting shopping spree than the Rockefeller Center LEGO Store? The Art of the Brick®, the newest exhibit at Discovery Times Square featuring lots and lots and lots of LEGOs. It showcases 101 amazing sculptures crafted solely from LEGO bricks and is rated by CNN as “one of the top ten must-see exhibitions in the world.” We’re talking life-size LEGO-people, towering crayons and local monuments that will blow minds and drop jaws, young and old. This is LEGO art that will wow you as much as your kiddo.

The Ultimate Brick Master

The artist, New York based Nathan Sawaya, started out just like your little brickmaster, spending endless childhood hours in the LEGO land of his own room. Today he uses nearly one million standard LEGO bricks to construct his plastic masterpieces (try fitting that in the toy box at home) and spends six figures annually on supplies.
