Some Assembly Required: The LEGO Brick Sculptures of Sean Kenney
October 19th ~ January 5th, 2014
The North Carolina Arboretum's eight acres of formal gardens and exhibit hall will be playfully decorated with twenty-seven sculptures created by LEGO brick artist and renowed children's author Sean Kenney of New York.
The sculptures are inspired by gardens and nature and range in size from six inches to nearly eight feet in height. A female life-size bison was made from 45,143 LEGO bricks and is one of the largest in this unique exhibition. The twenty-seven sculptures make up fourteen large displays and were created from nearly five hundred thousand LEGO bricks. New York-based Sean Kenney is one of only eleven LEGO Certified Builders in the world granted permission by LEGO to build on their behalf. The show titled Some Assembly Required opens in October for the holiday season and is expected to break attendance as it has at other venues across the US.
The garden display of LEGO brick sculptures along with an exhibition of local LEGO brick creations from our 2013 LEGO brick Competition will open October 19 and run through January 5th, 2014.
Details and entry forms for the Some Assembly Required local competiton will be released in May 2013!
