This Anchorage Museum organized exhibition explores the creative potential of LEGO® toys and bricks. The exhibition features work by New York artist Nathan Sawaya, who creates large-scale sculptures from LEGO® bricks, and English artist Mike Stimpson, who is known for re-creating historic events and popular culture scenes using LEGO figurines.

Interactive stations in this exhibition include a LEGO brick workshop area and technology to help visitors create and build. These hands-on stations emphasize LEGO bricks as learning tools with artistic, scientific, technological, engineering and mathematical applications.

A full range of public and school programs will accompany the exhibition.

LEGO bricks are symbols of innovation and a contemporary material used by architects, artists and engineers for their color, uniformity, ties to popular culture and endless potential for imagination. Despite a long history and simple form, LEGO bricks are more relevant than ever.
