The Art of the Brick

There are three shelves of My Little Ponies in my (pink) office. With accessories. Right by the box of Strawberry Shortcake Colorforms and unicorn coloring book, near my Smurf glass. I don’t necessarily broadcast this behavior, but after visiting The Art of the Brick at Discovery Times Square, I realized that there’s absolutely no shame in playing forever. The Art of the Brick features the works of Nathan Sawaya and is the world’s largest display of LEGO art. Here are a few of my favorite pieces from the show, which is on display through January 5.

American Gothic
Mona Lisa
Little Dancer of Fourteen Years
Girl with a Pearl Earring
Seated Buddha
I (he)Art NY

The museum is also hosting a LEGO building contest. Submissions are due by August 19. Now go play.
