Schedule and Location

Friday, May 24 through Sunday, September 15

Build your summer outdoors when the fan-favorite exhibition Nature Connects: Art with LEGO bricks by Sean Kenney returns to The Morton Arboretum. Visitors of all ages will enjoy the craftsmanship of 15 larger-than-life displays created from nearly half a million LEGO bricks, found along pathways through the Arboretum’s east side. Visitors will encounter an eight-foot-long dragonfly with a wingspan to match, a peacock showing off its magnificent plumage, and a monarch butterfly sitting on top of a milkweed plant. New highlights include a bee midflight, an oak tree sprouting from an acorn, and a pileated woodpecker with a bright crimson crest. These imaginative displays are the work of Sean Kenney, a New York–based artist and “professional kid.” This summer, see how everything in nature is connected at The Morton Arboretum.
