Excitement builds for colorful block exhibit
December 18, 2013 by Lisa
Starting today, the ‘Art of the Brick’ is an exhibit featuring the eye-catching LEGO® sculptures created by Nathan Sawaya. A suitable exhibition for the whole family to view, the Morris Museum has no doubt used poster printing and other printing services to share the information about this exhibit with people from this community and those located close by.
Sawaya, a New York artisan, creates awesome sculptures using LEGO® and a creative imagination. The exhibition features large-scale sculptures put together using plastic toy building blocks through spatial thinking and creative conceptualization, and has created an art form from a toy that every child has enjoyed at some time in their lives.
With sculptures ranging from the whimsical, to the complex, to the somewhat bizarre, children, no matter what their ages, are sure to enjoy this display of more than 30 works. Adults, meanwhile, are likely to view this display with fond recollection of a time when they too built from these colorful blocks, which originated in Demark and have existed as we now know them since 1949.
The cost to attend is the normal museum fee, and the exhibit be in place as of today, December 18th, with opening hours of 11:00 am to 5:00 pm at the Morris Museum located at 6 Normandy Heights Road in Morristown, New Jersey, a short drive down the road from Secaucus.
