Named one of CNN's Top Ten "Global Must-See Exhibitions," The Art of the Brick exhibit by artist Nathan Sawaya is a critically acclaimed collection of inspiring artworks made exclusively from one of the most recognizable toys in the world: the LEGO® brick. From child's toy to sophisticated art form and beyond, the world's largest display of LEGO art ever features original pieces as well as re-imagined versions of the world's most famous art masterpieces like Van Gogh's Starry Night and Da Vinci's Mona Lisa as well as a gallery showcasing an innovative, multimedia collection of LEGO brick infused photography produced in tandem with award-winning photographer Dean West. ​

After exploring the exhibit galleries, guests will enter a 9,000-square-foot brick play space to build their imaginative creations using hundreds of thousands of colorful bricks.
