May 27–September 4, 2023

THIS EXHIBITION IS NO LONGER ON VIEW AT THE MSV. Sean Kenney’s Nature Connects® Made with LEGO® Bricks is an award-winning exhibition that uses beautiful works of art made from simple toy blocks to explore animal endangerment, the balance of ecosystems, and mankind’s relationship with nature. From the proud power of a mother polar bear to the quiet serenity of a coral reef, the exhibition’s 13 displays of Sean Kenney’s art spark a sense of wonder in people of all ages. Read the press release here.
