The Art of the Brick

Lovers of LEGO® bricks, rejoice! This blockbuster exhibition, featuring more than 80 original sculptures made entirely of LEGO bricks, is coming to the Indiana State Museum.

Designed to inspire ingenuity and creativity, THE ART OF THE BRICK is the world's largest and most elaborate display of LEGO art featuring sculptures by artist Nathan Sawaya. This captivating exhibition takes an ordinary children’s toy and elevates it to the realm of art.

Get up-close with fan favorite Yellow – a life-size sculpture of a man ripping his chest open with thousands of yellow LEGO bricks cascading from the cavity – as well as re-imagined versions of some of the world's most famous art masterpieces like Van Gogh's Starry Night and Da Vinci's Mona Lisa.

THE ART OF THE BRICK is sure to inspire the artist within. Take inspiration from Sawaya’s artwork to create your own LEGO brick sculptures in an interactive activity area, where you can build whatever you can imagine.
