THE ART OF THE BRICK, a exhibition of works of art made exclusively using LEGO, was unveiled earlier this year at Discovery Times Square with brand-new, never-before-seen masterpieces by Artist Nathan Sawaya.

The Discovery Times Square collection will be the world’s biggest and most elaborate display of LEGO® art ever. Sawaya has created exclusively for this New York City premiere, more than 100 works of art made out of millions and millions of little LEGO bricks.

“These works are very personal to me, since they reflect my growth as an artist as I strove to discover my creative identity,” said Sawaya. “THE ART OF THE BRICK exhibition is accessible because it engages the child in all of us while simultaneously illuminating sophisticated and complex concepts. Everyone can relate to the medium since it is a toy that many children have at home. But my goal with this exhibition when it first debuted in 2007 was to elevate this simple plaything to a place it has never been before.”

Guests will have the opportunity to get an up-close and in-person view of the iconic, pop culture fan favorite, Yellow, a life-size sculpture of a man ripping his chest open with thousands of sunshine yellow LEGO bricks cascading from the cavity.

In addition, visitors will be able to walk under a 20-foot-long T-Rex dinosaur skeleton made out of bricks and come face-to-face with a giant LEGO skull.
