"The Art of the Brick," an exhibition featuring more than 100 incredible works of art made from millions of LEGO bricks, is at the Museum of Science and Industry (MSI) through Sept. 5.
Tickets are currently available for this collection of pieces by contemporary artist Nathan Sawaya.
Sawaya's original pieces and reimagined world-famous art masterpieces on display in the exhibition include:
Fan favorite "Yellow," a life-size sculpture of a man pulling his chest apart with thousands of yellow LEGO bricks flowing from the cavity;
Van Gogh's Starry Night and Da Vinci's Mona Lisa; and
A multimedia collection of LEGO brick-infused photography produced in tandem with award-winning photographer Dean West.
To celebrate the exhibition's Chicago debut, Nathan Sawaya has created several new pieces, including a replica of Chicago artist Hebru Brantley's "Flyboy."
Also, MSI has created the One Brick Studio, where guests can challenge friends and family to re-create a piece of art or express their emotions using LEGO bricks. Inside the studio, guests are encouraged to practice the same communication skills that scientists and artists use to share their ideas with the world.
