Lego - more than child's play
(Offbeat News) An artist has shown that the humble Lego brick is more than just child's play - by creating an entire exhibition based around brick forms.
33-year-old Nathan Sawaya's show 'The Art of the Brick' features more than 30 works and uses over one million colorful LEGO bricks
Items on show include a 5ft hand, life size sculptures and abstract 2 dimentional 'canvas.'
"The museum exhibit is accessible because it engages the child in all of us while simultaneously illuminating sophisticated and complex concepts," said the artist.
'Architecture of the Imagination: The Lure of the LEGO(R) Brick' which also offers visitors the chance to create their own work goes on show in March 2008 at the Stamford Museum & Nature Center.
