NASHVILLE, TN — When you heard the word LEGO, what comes to your mind right away? The colorful blocks we used to play with as kids, can now be seen as sculptures made from LEGO® at Cheekwood Estate and Gardens.

‘Sean Kenney's Nature Pop! Made with LEGO® bricks’ is currently on display at Cheekwood Estate and Gardens from May 1 through September 5, 2021. This exhibition features 38 sculptures made from more than 800,000 LEGO® Bricks by acclaimed artist Sean Kenney and produced by Imagine Exhibitions. Most of his creations are in sculptures of plants, animals, and nature.

The exhibition also explored the beauty of nature through contemporary and colorful displays that stand in striking contrast with their surroundings. Inspired by the pop art movement, Nature POP! blurred the boundaries between austere and every day, and drawing the belief that everything is connected.

In the beginning, Sean Kenney had been working with primary colors of red, blue, and yellow LEGO® bricks. He further extended creating sculptures with bright colors yet aesthetic minimalist in creating his sculptures.

Sean Kenney’s LEGO® exhibition will present a playful spin on traditional sculptural art and it is an accessible experience for all ages.

For guests and visitors wanting to see the exhibitions, they need to buy tickets to the garden as all of his sculptures are currently in an outdoor exhibition and none are placed in the Historic Mansion and Museum. Tickets to the gardens only will cost $13 for age 3 to 17 years, $16 for students with ID, $18 for seniors age 65 above, and $20 for adults. All tickets will be added with $1.50 for a service fee.

If interested, head down to the Cheekwood Estate and Gardens to see his sculpture made entirely of LEGO®. Tickets can be purchased here.
