Not long ago, I asked guests to my exhibition The Art of the Brick at Discovery Times Square to leave a little piece of themselves with me by signing an individual brick as they exited. In turn, I promised to sculpt a piece of artwork that represented a greater sense of community. For weeks I poured over thousands of multi-colored recycled bricks, stopping to read fun messages along the way, signatures that included handles, hashtags and hometown countries far from New York City.
I am honored to announce that The Art of the Brick will be coming to the heart of New York City at the Discovery Times Square (226 West 44th Street). This will be my largest showing of artwork to date, in fact, it will be the largest solo display of LEGO® art ever assembled. Since New York is my hometown, I have some very exciting surprises in store and have created several brand-new, never-been-seen pieces for this exhibition.
The exhibition opens on June 14th, 2013 and will be on display until January 5th, 2014. Tickets are available and can be purchased in advance here.
Can’t wait to see you all there!
