Sean Kenney’s NATURE CONNECTS® – sculptures made with LEGO® Bricks
June 6 @ 10:00 am - 7:00 pm
An event every week that begins at 10:00 am on Sunday, Monday, Tuesday, Wednesday, Thursday, Friday and Saturday, repeating until September 17, 2023
Sean Kenney’s Nature Connects Made with LEGO® Bricks, an award-winning and record-breaking exhibition that uses beautiful works of art made from simple toy blocks to explore animal endangerment, the balance of ecosystems, and mankind’s relationship with nature is coming to Kingwood Center Gardens from June 2 to September 17, 2023. Produced by Imagine Exhibitions, Nature Connects depicts important topics that the New York artist, Sean Kenney, holds dear, from protecting an animals’ habitat to planting a garden.
Nature Connects further shows that just as LEGO pieces interconnect, everything in nature is interconnected in a delicate balance. The narratives, along with the intricate displays, also explore the importance of conservation, the balance of ecosystems, predator/prey relationships, as well as the relationships between humankind and the natural world.
Most importantly, the exhibition allows visitors to appreciate both nature and the sculptures as something beautiful, and to inspire them to go home and create something wonderful themselves.
Fifteen sculptures will be on display throughout the gardens. Kingwood will offer special features during the exhibit including pop-up educational activities and a Community Creations competition, free-form nature-based sculptures made by community members of all ages.
Come explore the beauty and wonder of Sean Kenney’s Nature Connects Made with LEGO® Bricks. Kingwood will be open daily to the public from 10 a.m. to 7 p.m. Online-timed tickets are required for all guests and members and will be available to purchase beginning April 15 at kingwoodcenter.org or by calling 419-522-0211.
