Sean Kenney’s “Nature Connects Made with LEGO Bricks” — an award-winning and record-breaking exhibition that uses beautiful works of art made from simple toy blocks to explore animal endangerment, the balance of ecosystems, and mankind’s relationship with nature — is coming to Fairchild Tropical Botanic Garden from Apr. 30 to Aug. 28.

Set across Fairchild Tropical Botanic Garden’s 83-acre tropical paradise located in the heart of Miami guests can discover 30 giant sculptures, built with over 700,000 LEGO bricks.

Produced by Imagine Exhibitions, Nature Connects depicts important topics that the New York artist, Sean Kenney, holds dear, from protecting an animals’ habitat to planting a garden, or using a bike instead of a car.

Nature Connects further shows that just as LEGO pieces interconnect, everything in nature is interconnected in a delicate balance. The narratives, along with the intricate displays, also explore the importance of conservation, the balance of ecosystems, predator/prey relationships, as well as the relationships between humankind and the natural world.

Most importantly, the exhibition allows visitors to appreciate both nature and the sculptures as something beautiful, and to inspire them to go home and create something wonderful themselves.

Tom Zaller, CEO of Imagine Exhibitions shared, “Imagine Exhibitions is proud to partner with Sean Kenney to bring the creative vision of Nature Connects to Fairchild Tropical Botanic Garden. The messages in the exhibition about our connection to nature are beautifully presented and effectively weaved into the story in the hopes of inspiring visitors to think more about mankind’s impact on the greater world around us.”

Guests can explore the beauty and wonder of Sean Kenney’s Nature Connects Made with LEGO Bricks, for a limited engagement open daily to the public from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m.
