New LEGO® exhibit opens June 16




 

 

THE ART OF THE BRICK, the world’s largest exhibition of LEGO® art, opens at Carnegie Science Center’s new PPG SCIENCE PAVILION™ on Saturday, June 16.

Heralded by CNN as a “Global Must-See Exhibition,” THE ART OF THE BRICK exhibit by artist Nathan Sawaya is a critically acclaimed collection of creative and inspiring sculptures constructed using only LEGO bricks, including the artist’s original pieces and renditions of some of the world’s most famous works of art, such as Van Gogh’s Starry Night and Da Vinci’s Mona Lisa.

THE ART OF THE BRICK is the inaugural exhibition for the new Scaife Exhibit Gallery, located inside PPG Science Pavilion, a $33 million, 48,000-square-foot expansion at the Science Center. The Scaife Exhibit Gallery, a 14,000-square-foot space, offers the opportunity for Pittsburgh to host large blockbuster touring exhibits that currently bypass the city.

Kids can explore The Science of the Brick, Carnegie Science Center’s hands-on activity and free-play area featuring LEGO building challenges and interactives.
