Art of the Brick
Dallas TPID Helps the Perot Museum Connect with a Larger Audience
The Art of the Brick traveling exhibition features recreated and original artistic masterpieces made of millions of LEGO® bricks. Created by internationally renowned contemporary artist Nathan Sawaya, The Art of the Brick is designed to inspire ingenuity and creativity with original pieces and reimagined versions of some of history’s most famous works of art, including Van Gogh’s Starry Night, Michelangelo’s David and Vermeer’s Girl with a Pearl Earring. Former New York City corporate lawyer turned contemporary artist, Nathan Sawaya is the first artist ever to take the LEGO® brick into the art world as a medium. Sawaya has earned a top position in the world of contemporary art and has created a new dimension by merging Pop Art and Surrealism in awe-inspiring and groundbreaking ways.
