The Art of the Brick was AMAZING!

The Art of Brick was amazing!  Disclosure:  My Best of Both Worlds was provided with complimentary tickets to experience The Art of the Brick at Discovery Times Square  in order to facilitate a review.  No other form of compensation was received in exchange for this publication.  All opinions expressed are true and mine own and those of my family and we were amazed with Lego art.

If you think Legos are just for kids, you would be wrong.  When you enter the exhibit, a short film is shown about the artist behind The Art of the Brick, Nathan Sawaya.  His creative side was so strong, that encouraged by family and friends AFTER becoming an attorney he channeled his energies into creating amazing life-like pieces of art made from Lego bricks.

Sawaya said it all started with one brick and it did!

As you move into the first gallery, you see Sawaya’s re-creations of master pieces made out of Legos.

It is really unbelievable.  The pictures all taken by my daughter Kristen while fantastic, just don’t do these creations justice.  Seeing them in person is the way to go.

Each gallery was just more amazing then the next.  We couldn’t wait to get to the next one.  We actually had to tell my husband and son to slow down so we could examine each sculpture more closely.

Sean Eddie got eye to eye with the great Nefertiti.

The amazement just kept on coming and coming as we made our way through the exhibit.

Next to piece of Lego Art is the name of the creation and a brief description of what it’s all about as well as how many bricks it took to make it.  We enjoyed guessing at the number of Legos it took to create each piece.

The piece that got my six-year-old super excited was the T-Rex!

It had it’s own room with cool smoke to make it feel like you were back in the land of dinos.  It was amassed with 80,020 Lego bricks!

There was even a gallery all about New York of course.

There was so much more to see, you have to get there to experience it in person.

At the end of the exhibit each visitor is asked to sign a brick and add it to the wall, and when the exhibit concludes, Sawaya will use these Lego bricks in a special piece.
