Sean Kenney’s Nature Connects®

A fox made out of LEGO.

Art and science collide with intricate sculptures inspired by nature

From the smallest creature to the tallest tree, everything is connected. This symbiosis is exactly what inspired New York artist Sean Kenney to create Nature Connects®, a collection of huge sculptures made from LEGO® bricks.

From a life-sized gardener to a larger-than-life germinating acorn standing over 5 feet tall, Kenney’s awe-inspiring sculptures dazzle and delight art- and science-lovers of all ages. Each sculpture is made from thousands of toy bricks. Take, for example, the 2-foot tall dragonfly—it’s made up of 11,500 tiny pieces!

Come to the Science Centre to see this impressive exhibition for yourself. Visit our grounds to enjoy free outdoor access to the Nature Connects® sculptures anytime.

Artists, nature-lovers and aspiring engineers alike will admire Kenney’s gravity-defying sculptures.
