THE ART OF THE BRICK brings to life Sawaya's one-of-a-kind pieces of art, including an impressive T-Rex dinosaur skeleton and the iconic pop-culture favorite "Yellow"—a life-size sculpture of a man ripping his chest open with thousands of sunshine-yellow LEGO bricks cascading from the cavity.  The exhibit, one of the most successful exhibitions held at Discovery Times Square, is the largest collection of LEGO art ever on display showcasing more than 100 creations, including 50 stunning replicas of some of the most famous works of art throughout history, like Van Gogh's Starry Night and Da Vinci's Mona Lisa. Prior to opening in NYC, the critically acclaimed collection of creative and inspiring art – named by CNN as one of the Top 10 "must see exhibitions" in the world - achieved record-breaking runs in Singapore, Taiwan, and Australia.

"I am grateful that there is so much demand for the art that we are returning to New York City," said artist Nathan Sawaya. "I create and share my art to inspire others, and to take LEGO where it has never been before.  Now more people will have the opportunity to experience THE ART OF THE BRICK and see LEGO bricks in a new light."

On its heralded return to New York City, THE ART OF THE BRICK will also feature a newly introduced gallery that showcases Sawaya's In Pieces collection, a multimedia collaboration produced in tandem with award-winning photographer Dean West.

THE ART OF THE BRICK at Discovery Times Square runs until May 11, 2014. Discovery Times Square is open seven days a week. Tickets are available for $16.50 (child 4-12 years), $19.50 (adult) and $17.50 (seniors 65+).  Once open, the last tickets are sold 45 minutes prior to closing.

About Nathan Sawaya
Nathan Sawaya is an acclaimed New York-based artist who creates awe-inspiring artwork out of a toy. His art focuses on large-scale sculptures using only LEGO® bricks. Sawaya was the first artist to ever take LEGO into the art world and his touring exhibition – THE ART OF THE BRICK® – has entertained and inspired millions of art lovers and enthusiasts from Australia, Taiwan, Singapore, China and around the world. CNN heralded THE ART OF THE BRICK as one of the must-see exhibitions in the world. Originally from Oregon, Sawaya's childhood dreams were always fun and creative. He drew cartoons, wrote stories and of course also played with LEGO. His days were filled with imagination. When it came time for college, Sawaya moved to New York City, attended NYU and became a lawyer. But after years of million dollar mergers and corporate acquisitions on Park Avenue, Sawaya realized he would rather be sitting on the floor creating art, than sitting in a board room negotiating contracts. He walked away from the law and took an artistic risk on LEGO. Now Sawaya is an author, speaker and one of the most popular, award-winning contemporary artists of our time.
