Yesterday I got to catch a preview of The Art of the Brick, an exhibition of sculptural works by artist Nathan Sawaya at the Discovery TImes Square.  Sawaya uses legos to build replicas of well known artworks, monuments, and other sculptures. I was struck by particular texture of the works - the boxed lines, hard corners and shiny surfaces gave each piece an almost pixellated look. Some of my favorites were Sawaya’s sculptural interpretation of Edvard Munch’s The Scream (recently at MoMA)  and Edgar Degas’ Little Dancer

The show opens today! 

Special thanks to Jackie Times for letting me come along!
