15 x 15 x 24"        3,375 LEGO elements.        Completed April 30, 2012
Come visit! This sculpture and 26 others are touring the U.S. now through 2014. Over 25 larger-than-life sculptures created with nearly half a million LEGO pieces! Read more and come visit!

These life-size American Goldfinches are each about 6 inches long and are mounted to a real bird feeder. They were designed with multiple postures and set up to look as realistically posed as possible.

The sculpture was installed in April 2012 at Reiman Gardens in Iowa as part of my traveling exhibition, Nature Connects. In October 2012 it will travel to it's next location, so stay tuned for updates!

Clearly, LEGO birds eat LEGO pieces.

The entire sculpture was assembled in my New York City art studio, then custom-crated in museum-quality exhibition crates for my new show, Nature Connects, which is currently touring the United States.
