I just returned from a visit with my grandchildren and their parents. One of the things we did was to go to the Oregon Museum of Science and Industry to see their new exhibit “The Art of the Brick.” We had to wait in line for more than an hour to get into the exhibit, but it was worth the wait.
This exhibit features the work of Nathan Sawaya, an Oregon artist who builds his amazing art with Legos! I have to say that I was just as in awe as the children were. We as quilters build our art with fabric and thread, one piece at a time and it was easy to see some of the parallels in the creation of the Lego art.
I took several photos with the children to put into perspective the size of some of the pieces.
If you ever get a chance to see an exhibit of Mr. Sawaya’s in person you should go. It is truly inspiring.
You can see examples of his art on his website: http://www.nathansawaya.com
