Mounts Botanical Garden Opens 'Nature POPS! LEGO® Bricks' Exhibition This Saturday

 
WEST PALM BEACH, Fla. - Jan. 6, 2022 - PRLog -- (West Palm Beach, FL  – January 5, 2022) Sean Kenney's Nature POP! Made with LEGO Bricks is set to make its Florida premiere at Mounts Botanical Garden this Saturday, January 8, and running through Sunday, May 1. This new exhibition from acclaimed artist Sean Kenney features over 40 sculptures made from more than 800,000 LEGO pieces and explores the beauty of nature through highly stylized, colorful displays that stand in striking contrast with their surroundings.

Produced by Imagine Exhibitions, Nature POP! blends art, science, and innovation in the display of the artist's newest, never-before-seen sculptures. Known for his ability to make striking works of art using simple LEGO toys, Kenney pushes the boundaries of the medium in this new exhibition through his use of vibrant colors and a bold, graphical style. Inspired by the Pop art movement, Kenney's work on 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.

Nature POP! invites guests to consider how just as LEGO bricks are interconnected, so is everything in nature. The intricate displays explore the relationships that exist in nature, whether that be the delicate balance between predators and prey, the commonalities between species as they care for their young, or the impact that humankind has on the natural world. Supporting content enhances the experience with scientific facts about the creatures presented in the displays.

Most importantly, the exhibition allows visitors to appreciate both nature and the sculptures as something beautiful, and to inspire them to go home and create something wonderful themselves. Presenting a playful spin on traditional sculptural art, Nature POP! is an accessible experience for all ages.

"We are very excited to welcome Sean Kenney back to the Garden to debut his new exhibition in Florida," said Rochelle Wolberg, Curator-Director for Mounts Botanical Garden. "Nature POP! is the perfect way to launch the new year and is guaranteed to thrill visitors of all ages.  It highlights our Season of Awe and Wonder."

"We are so delighted to sponsor this exciting exhibit," said Jan Cairnes, CEO for Hanley Foundation. "Hanley Foundation is the nonprofit statewide leader in adolescent substance use prevention and education, and we know how important family time is in preventing substance use disorder. We hope families will come together to enjoy this incredible opportunity to connect with nature and connect as a family. Family time is time well spent."
