“Sean Kenney’s Nature Connects: Made with LEGO® Bricks” Exhibit

May 3rd - Sep 2nd

A series of sculptures built with more than 250,000 LEGO® bricks will be on display throughout Discovery Park’s 50 acres from Friday, May 3 to Monday, Sept. 2, 2024 with the award-winning traveling exhibition, “Sean Kenney’s Nature Connects®  Made with LEGO®   Bricks.”

Featuring works created by artist Sean Kenney, “Nature Connects” presents 19 displays of sculptures made from LEGO® bricks that were specially curated to enhance a visit to Discovery Park. Included in the collection is a monarch butterfly built with 60,500 LEGO® bricks that took 377 hours to build, a life-sized gardener built with 37,400 LEGO® bricks that took 320 hours to build and various giant plants, animals and insects. An educator guide for the exhibit is available online for parents or educators who would like to provide lessons before or after experiencing the exhibit. Check out the photos below for a sneak peek of the sculptures.

There will also be three week-long LEGO® camps this summer for six-year-old through 12-year-old students. The LEGO® camp activities will broaden students’ understanding of topics like physics and engineering while also remaining engaging and, most importantly, fun. The cost of each week-long camp is $100 for members and $125 for non-members. See the dates with links to sign-up below:
