The Art of the Brick

| | Comments (4)
While in Sydney I went along to Nathan Sawaya's Lego exhibition "The Art of the Brick" at the Town Hall.  It was pretty crowded with kids but was otherwise awesome, and unlike the money-hungry Warner Bros you were allowed to take photos at this exhibition.  Which made it all kinds of wonderful.

D: yeah shame it wasn't on when you were here

K: yup, pretty cool :) I think I liked the Artist's View best.. the entire scene was made of Lego, including the tripod and the floor tiles (the mosaic of sydney was pretty awesome too)
