Museum visitors can experience the world's largest display of LEGO art during this special exhibition. Acclaimed artist Nathan Sawaya created the 100+ pieces for this exhibition using only LEGO bricks. The collection features original pieces such as Yellow, a life-size sculpture of a man ripping his chest open with thousands of yellow LEGO bricks cascading from him, and Dinosaur Skeleton, a 20-foot long sculpture of a T-Rex dinosaur skeleton. The collection also includes re-imagined versions of some of the world's most famous art masterpieces such as Mona Lisa, The Scream, and Starry Night. Visitors inspired by Sawaya's work can visit a special interactive area of the exhibition where they can engage in LEGO brick building challenges, games and a free play area. In this section of The Art of the Brick, visitors can recreate famous buildings and bridges, build a LEGO brick car and test it out on various ramps, create a LEGO brick maze, and more.
