Giant animals made from more than 450,000 LEGO bricks are coming to Harry P. Leu Gardens early next year.

The exhibit, "Nature Connects Art with LEGO Bricks" by Artist Sean Kenney, will be on display from Jan. 6 through April 22 and features 16 sculptures in 13 displays throughout the 50-acre garden.



"The use of LEGO bricks as the art medium is ingenious. Each piece connects to another to make a colorful sculpture of nature as nature connects to each other. Plants, animals and insects have a defining role to play and those relationships helps keep nature in balance," said Robert Bowden, Director of Harry P. Leu Gardens.

On Jan. 27, from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m., Leu Gardens will host a special Connect with Nature Day, which will include a chance to meet the artist, crafts, and a scavenger hunt

"Nature Connects Art with LEGO Bricks" is included with a regular garden admission, which is $10 for adults, $5 children age 4-17 years.

Leu Gardens is located at 1920 N. Forest Ave.
