Art can come from anywhere

For all the young (and geeky) at heart artists…

I’ve been a little light on posting lately, because we’ve been taking family trips here and there. Last weekend, we finally got to “The Art of the Brick” exhibit at the Franklin Institute (which is around for another month, if you’re interested). It’s a pretty neat exhibit if you are, say, a small child and love Legos. It’s also a pretty neat exhibit if you’re a grownup.

"The Kiss" “The Kiss”

Much of the exhibit consisted of Nathan Sawaya’s Lego versions of famous works of art. Which is impressive all by itself. But his works were displayed with an image of the original artwork, including information about the artist and why the piece is so revered. There were a lot of kids walking around the exhibit, and I’m willing to bet it was the first-ever art exhibit for a few of them; I appreciated Sawaya’s throwing in an art history lesson or two.
