Sean Kenney’s Nature Connects®

A fox made 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.

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!

Stop by the Science Centre to see Sean Kenney’s Nature Connects® on display outdoors for everyone to enjoy. Check them out around the main entrance (near the OMNIMAX® Theatre) from now until September 26, 2021.

Spot stunning sculptures outdoors at the Science Centre

Take some time to explore the Science Centre grounds during your next visit, or stop by anytime to have a look at the Nature Connects® sculptures placed around the front of the building outdoors—no admission required!

Enter the Science Centre grounds from Don Mills Road and St. Dennis Drive, and start to look around. You’ll notice Nature Connects® sculptures in no time. Artists, nature-lovers and aspiring engineers alike will admire Kenney’s gravity-defying sculptures. While you’re checking out Sean Kenney’s fox sculpture, which the artist spent 210 hours constructing, see if you can spot a real fox near the Don Valley ravine!

Take your time examining the artwork, but remember to be mindful of other art admirers! Be sure to maintain physical distance from other groups at all times.
