Nature Connects®: Art with LEGO® Bricks has arrived at The North Carolina Arboretum and it is an exhibit not to be missed. Chris and I took an early morning trip to the Arboretum located at 100 Fredirick Law Olmsted Way in Asheville last week to view the amazing exhibit that is currently on display until November 1st. The sculptures are sprinkled throughout the gardens and grounds and are easily accessible.
As we walked and viewed them each one seemed more intricate and spectacular than the next one.
Of course each design was accompanied by a descriptive plaque that detailed the artist, how many bricks were used, size and other pertinent facts that viewers might be interested in.
From insects to objects each carefully crafted piece was a work of art.
It was the perfect time to go to view the new exhibit and since we arrived almost as soon as the Arboretum opened in the morning we were able to walk and view the exhibits and social distance with ease.
I think it is pretty amazing what the creators came up with for each of these displays.
Some of the structures seemed more lifelike than others and the giant corn spider was truly eye catching.
Of course I loved the white tailed deer display which boasted 84, 442 bricks. Amazing.
If I had to pick a favorite out of these it would have to be the peacock. It was in a word – miraculous.
The monarch on milkweed was at the entrance and we almost missed it because we walked in a different way to avoid the paving that was going on. So happy we found it
