Lego Art Exhibit At The Stamford Museum & Nature Center
The little brick that could is featured with a special exhibition at The Stamford Museum & Nature Center, and with a special Connecticut Connection (Lego is made in CT), Lego® never looked so good. The exhibition titled Architecture of the Imagination: The Lure of the LEGO® Brick Featuring Nathan Sawaya: The Art of the Brick will be on view from Sunday, March 2, 2008 - Sunday, August 18, 2008.
Having captured the imagination of both children and adults, the LEGO® brick stands out as the most successful minimalist toy of all time.
