Legos: You’ve stacked them, you’ve stepped on them, but you’ve never seen them quite like this.
From May 27 to Sept. 18, visitors at Lewis Ginter Botanical Garden can revisit their childhood through 27 Lego sculptures in “Nature Connects,” the brainchild of New York City-based artist Sean Kenney.
“Much as Lego pieces connect, everything in nature is connected in an intricate balance,” Kenney says via email. The pieces, such as a 7-foot-tall rose or a dragonfly with a 3 1/2 -foot wingspan, are made using standard Lego pieces, reinforced with steel and then glued and coated in a protective lacquer.
Included with regular garden admission of $13. 262-9887 or lewisginter.org.
