Review of Nature Connects: LEGO exhibit at the Louisville Zoo

 photo 20150410_161648_zpsxsolsih0.jpgNature Connects® is a LEGO® brick sculpture exhibit presented by Ford Motor Company. This limited time exhibit is free with Zoo admission or your Louisville Zoo membership. 

Throughout the Zoo, one will find 13 exhibit areas, with a total of 23 nature-inspired brick sculptures. Sean Kenney, an artist and children’s author, built the sculptures that range in various sizes, some close to 7’ tall!

On the back side is a list of all the sculptures and their locations, information of the LEGO® Brick Bash happening May 30-13, the LEGO® Brick Yard: Stay and Play, as well as an optional scavenger hunt at the bottom.

On this particular day, we had 3 adults in our party and 4 kids, ranging from 5-8yrs old. The kids were immediately drawn to the idea of “searching” for the sculptures. As for the adults, we were all mesmerized by the intricacy of the sculptures, and the facts/details about each, as they are posted beside each one. There is something for everyone to enjoy with these sculptures, especially for those who are really into LEGO® construction.

Although we read each posting, and were amazed by the amount of bricks each sculpture required, we did not participate in the scavenger hunt on this trip – but definitely plan to the next time around!! 

This exhibit will be available April 10 – July 5, 2015.
