Nature Connects is an award-winning, record-breaking exhibition now touring North America. Created with over 2 million LEGO pieces, this show features over 100 sculptures built with LEGO bricks by New York artist Sean Kenney.
Sean Kenney's Nature Connects, award winning exhibit of sculptures built with LEGO pieces Nature Connects is foremost an educational platform and secondarily a means of artistic expression.

I hope that you can look at Nature Connects and appreciate both nature and the sculptures as something beautiful, and I also hope you're inspired to go home and create something wonderful yourself. Sean Kenney's Nature Connects, award winning exhibit of sculptures built with LEGO pieces
Just as LEGO pieces interconnect, everything in nature is interconnected in a delicate balance. Insects and plants have important relationships; different species of animals have special relationships with each other; animals have connections with their families just like we do.

And of course, people have a connection with nature, whether you're trimming a bonsai tree or planting a garden, or anything else: you are a part of nature. Sean Kenney's Nature Connects, award winning exhibit of sculptures built with LEGO pieces
