Bring a POP of color to your venue with Nature POP!® a new exhibition from artist Sean Kenney (creator of the award-winning, record-breaking exhibition Nature Connects®). Featuring over 40 sculptures made from more than 800,000 LEGO® pieces, the exhibition explores the beauty of nature through contemporary, stylized, and colorful displays that stand in striking contrast with their surroundings. Blending art, science, and innovation, the larger-than-life sculptures in Nature POP!® invite visitors to admire Sean’s artistry, reflect on the complex natural world, and consider the incredible feats of engineering on display. Sean’s vibrant, gravity-defying structures present a playful spin on traditional sculptural art—making it accessible to guests of all ages and backgrounds. Inspired by the pop art movement, Nature POP!® plays on that movement’s principles by blurring the boundaries between austere and the everyday, and draws from a belief that everything is interconnected. The exhibition challenges guests to consider: just as LEGO bricks interconnect, how is everything in nature interconnected? Whimsical, bold, and bombastic, Nature POP! will delight visitors and inspire them to think and create in new, more colorful ways!
