Over the staycation weekend we visited The Art of the Brick exhibition at Art Science Museum. It was our first visit to the museum and personally I was very excited about it. We took a stroll to the museum after we checked out of the hotel (to save on parking since its complimentary from the hotel). The weather wasn’t hot nor windy, but by the time we reached the museum, we were all drenched in sweat. The air condition at the museum was super welcoming.
Ayra chose to walk across the Helix Bridge on her own, and she sure know how to take her time. She swung from side to side and did her dance moves (no there wasn’t any music) while enjoying her walk. She would stop for a minute on every lighting spot she passed just to rest her feet on them. With her comical walk and loud giggles, she attracted much attention from the others. In return, she will wave and say hi at them. Super friendly girl!
Before the visit, I’ve seen so many posts about The Art of the Brick, but seeing the real thing in person is so much more fascinating and I was in awe throughout the walk in the exhibition.
At The Art of the Brick, my perspective of LEGO changed. LEGO is usually used for building of three dimensional structures but it does pop-up art and 2-dimensional stuff very well too! Like this self portrait of the artist himself…
Kudos to the creator, Nathan Sawaya, of all these amazing displays at the exhibition. It opened our eyes and gave us new challenges and ideas on how we can play with LEGO. Can’t wait for my children to grow up so that it’ll be safe for us to have LEGO bricks around the house.
There were couple of interactive stations setup around the exhibition and one of Ayra’s favorite is the doodling boards.
There was one part of the exhibition were strobe lights and music was played. Being Ayra, she did what she do in such environment… she did her “Ayra dance”…
The visit to The Art of the Brick was an interesting and fun experience for the family. The Art of Brick exhibition is on till 26 May 2013 at The Art Science Museum. Click here for ticketing details.
