Visit the Klehm Arboretum this week for a sight beyond your imagination. Made to exist right between the natural wonders of the stunning botanical garden, you’ll find endlessly fascinating giant lego sculptures. With a Toy Story feel, the new exhibit aims to immerse visitors in a lego land dream come true. Perfect for all ages, the family-friendly exhibit shows off nature’s best in lego format for an extra fun twist.
The award-winning sculptures have a mass appeal, taking beautiful works of art made from simple toy blocks to explore themes such as animal endangerment, the balance of ecosystems, and mankind’s relationship with nature.
The exhibit is a record-breaking hit and something you have to see for yourself. Hand crafted by Imagine Exhibitions, the event, officially called Sean Kenney’s Nature Connects Made with LEGO® Bricks, first opened on June 11 and runs until September. Each design is inherently unique, depicting a different part of nature and highlighting the importance of protecting its natural beauty.
One Lego sculpture shows visitors the significance of planting a garden and highlights the relationship between humans and the natural world around us. Another such sculpture shows a butterfly landing on a bright pink flower, offering a statement on nature and the ecosystem at its best. It’s just under a two hour drive to the arboretum in Rockford, IL. Plan ahead and grab tickets now as the exhibit is available to tour seven days a week, starting at 9 AM and going until 7 PM.
