During the four month long exhibit, guests of all ages will discover the connections between art, nature, play and design. A LEGO brick playroom will be available on select dates for guests to build their own creations; the LEGO movie will be shown monthly in the evenings amongst the sculptures and a Design Challenge with LEGO Bricks will encourage builders of all ages to show off their skills with the beloved toys.”

Carolyn’s note: I love legos, don’t you?  Especially giant ones.  Saw several when we visited Legoland in Denmark.  And then there’s also Legoland California in Carlsbad, CA, a bit closer to Arizona.

    Beautiful day to drop by the Tucson Botanical Gardens to see this lovely show of 13 lego structures, the ongoing butterfly (and non-poisonous frog) exhibit, and the lovely autumn colors in the garden. Especially liked the hummingbird on 2 flowers Lego structure, made out of 61,107 bricks! The 12 others are made from less bricks, but are beautiful as well — a monarch butterfly on a milkweed (photo above), giant pansy blossom and bee, Galapagos tortoise and finch, a lovely peacock, etc. They structures are scattered all over the garden, so it’s like a scavenger hunt to find them. Coming up on December 18, an after hour visit to see the Legos lit up, 6 to 8:30 p.m. with admission. The last day of this travelling exhibit is January 3, 2016.
