Nathan Sawaya: Replay
June 5 – Aug. 15, 2010
Opening Reception: Fri., June 4, 6-9 pm
Special Event: Live Day Build with the artist on Sat., June 5, 11-4 pm
Back by popular demand, an exhibition of new work by Nathan Sawaya! The Center will feature a summer season family-friendly exhibition by the internationally acclaimed artist, whose sculptures are made up exclusively of LEGO® brick. His 2008 show at the Center drew the largest attendance in the non-profit institution’s 30+ year history, as well as an abundance of media coverage, including spots on local NBC and CBS TV affiliates and international television (CNN) as well as radio broadcast and print coverage. This is a show of all new artwork by an artist whose work has proven to ignite the imaginations of both children and adults alike. For Replay Sawaya will emphasize the use of recycled LEGO brick in some of his works. Learn more about Nathan Sawaya by visiting his website.
