At Beverley Art Gallery
Brick Wonders features recreations in LEGO® bricks of amazing sights from around the world, curated by artist Warren Elsmore. Beginning with the seven wonders of the ancient world, the exhibition also takes in modern, natural, and historic wonders from all seven continents. Brick Wonders takes visitors from an Egyptian pyramid to the natural pyramid of the Matterhorn, the bustle of Old London Bridge to the awesome night skies of the Aurora Australis, and those everyday marvels we forget to wonder at, such as electricity and the Internet.
The centrepiece is a 2x3 metre installation of the Great Barrier Reef, complete with underwater lighting and sound effects, and LEGO recreations of everything from corals and sponges to turtles and reef-dwelling fish such as blue tangs, angel fish and a ray.
Over forty other LEGO models are included, from tiny models to inspire building at home, to large mosaics and dioramas and the exhibition is built from over 500,000 LEGO bricks.
