GRAND RAPIDS, Mich. — Sculptures created with LEGO bricks returns to the Muskegon Museum of Art in "Replay: The Exhibition". The exhibit features a variety of art from the Millenium Falcon, Pikachu, Donald Duck and more.
The exhibition is a celebration of American Pop and Geek sculpture. The display includes paintings, photographs, and mixed media pieces that explore how iconic cartoon, video game, movie, and comic heroes and villains shape our culture.
It features eleven large-scale LEGO brick sculptures that speak that play off pop culture. There will also be an area for kids of all ages to build their own creations during the show.
In response to the paintings and photographs, The Collective, a team of collaborative sculptors, have created LEGO brick sculptures to enhance the themes presented throughout the show. Through these added voices, images leap from the walls to inhabit the gallery floor and deepen our experience.
The exhibition is sponsored bythe DTE Foundation, Rehmann, PNCBank, and Lorin and Michigan Council for Arts and Cultural Affairs.
There will also be some events coming up following the opening of the exhibit. There is a LEGO Super Saturday on July 13, from 10 a.m. through 5 p.m., Free Family Fun with family film, tours, make & take art activity, and sketching with cartoon artist Scott Rosema.
