The Art of the Brick | Nathan Sawaya | On display through Dec. 29 | Tues - Sun 11-5pm
Nathan Sawaya is a New York-based artist who creates awe-inspiring works out of some the most unlikely things. His art focuses on large-scale sculptures using only toy building blocks: LEGO bricks to be exact.
Sawaya was the first artist to ever take LEGO into the art world. For years, Sawaya's critcally acclaimed exhibition - The Art of the Brick - has entertained and inspired art lovers and enthusiasts. Now, with multiple exhibitions touring North America, Asia, Australia, and the Middle East, Sawaya is inspiring millions around the globe.
Concurrently on display at the MAC for the run of the exhibition will be Sawaya's unique multimedia collaboration with award winning Australian photographer Dean West, entitled In Pieces. The two artists spent years traveling and working together to blend their crafts resulting in the IN PIECES collection of visually stunning hyper-realistic images that are exhibited with corresponding three dimensional LEGO brick Sculptures.
