Leu Gardens: LEGO Bricks and Botanicals in Audubon Park
"Just as LEGO pieces interconnect, everything in nature is interconnected in a delicate balance. Insects and plants have important relationships; different species of animals have connections with their families just like we do."
Leu Gardens has a very special event happening called Nature Connects and it involves over 450,000 LEGO Bricks. Artist Sean Kenney is a self-proclaimed professional kid and he uses LEGO Bricks to create contemporary sculpture. This traveling exhibition has been touring the world since 2012 and truly is an incredible sight to see.
It's available here in Orlando until April 22, 2018 so be sure to visit before it moves on. Brendan and I took a walk through the garden and saw every single one of Kenney's creatures. Did you know:
- Over 464,770 LEGO Bricks were used for the exhibit.
- There are 16 sculptures, so grab a map to find them all.
- It took Kenney over 4,500 hours to build all the sculptures.
