An event every day that begins at 9:00am, repeating until November 26, 2017

At the Virginia Living Museum July 22 through Nov. 26, Nature Connects is an award-winning, record-breaking exhibition touring North America. Created with over a half million LEGO pieces, this show features larger-than-life sculptures built with LEGO bricks by Brooklyn artist and children’s author Sean Kenney.

The sculptures bring nature to life with a 6-foot hummingbird hovering over a trumpet flower, a deer family made from 48,000 bricks, a giant tortoise, a 7-foot long dragonfly and more. This spectacular combination of nature and art will be featured outdoors in the VLM’s Conservation Garden and other outdoor areas.

“Just as LEGO pieces interconnect, everything in nature is interconnected in a delicate balance. Insects and plants have important relationships; different species of animals have special relationships with each other; animals have connections with their families just like we do,” says Kenney on his website.

Created in partnership with Iowa State University, Nature Connects is foremost an educational platform and secondarily a means of artistic expression. Included in museum admission. 524 J. Clyde Morris Blvd., Newport News.
