Build your summer outdoors with Nature Connects®: Art with LEGO® bricks by Sean Kenney, opening May 24 at The Morton Arboretum! Marvel at awe-inspiring nature-themed sculptures created entirely from more than half a million LEGO bricks, set along the Arboretum’s tree-lined paths. See the beauty of the natural world captured in 15 intricate displays, including an eight-foot-long dragonfly, its enormous wings spread overhead, and a peacock showing off its brilliant green, yellow, and blue feathers. The fan-favorite exhibition makes its return to the Arboretum with three new displays, among them an oak tree sprouting from an acorn and a pileated woodpecker with a crimson crest.
Just as LEGO bricks connect, all of nature’s diverse building blocks—trees, animals, birds, and insects—are linked to one another. Throughout the exhibition, Nature Connects showcases these meaningful relationships, with displays including a monarch butterfly on a milkweed plant and a bee on a colorful flower.
This summer, see how everything in nature is connected at The Morton Arboretum.
During Nature Connects, kids can create their own masterpieces with LEGO brick Play, daily in the Children’s Garden.
