The Art of the Brick” exhibit on display now through May 1, 2016 at the Cincinnati Museum Center features over 100 works of art by contemporary artist Nathan Sawaya, all made entirely of LEGO® bricks. Millions of them.

The artist used the tiny bricks to create sculptures of art classics as well as original works, from a series of life-size human figures to a 20-foot long T-Rex skeleton. And museum visitors inspired by “TheArt of theBrick” can have fun creating their own LEGO sculptures in “Brickopolis,” an interactive exhibit space designed by museum curators. Joining us to discuss the exhibits and using LEGO bricks to have fun and to create art are Cincinnati Museum Center Exhibits Business Development Manager Sarah Lima and Manager of Media Relations, Cody Hefner.
