Nature Connects, Art with LEGO® Bricks

Brought to you by

“Nature Connects, Art with LEGO® Bricks,” by Sean Kenney, brought to you by The Goddard Schools. This award-winning, traveling exhibit features life-size, and even some larger than life, animal and plant sculptures created using LEGO bricks. More than 35 sculptures will be scattered throughout the Zoo, representing animals people can find in both North America and abroad. These include a 400-pound bumblebee, a hummingbird with an eight-foot wing span and a full-scale, African lion at the main gate. In addition to showing guests how they connect with animals and nature through art, Zoo staff members hope the exhibit will build a fondness among children for science, technology, engineering and math.
