Children go free to The Art of the Brick during half term

The Art of the Brick currently resides in Manchester, UK, and during half term children can visit for free.

This February half term, children will be able to visit LEGO Certified Professional (LCP) Nathan Sawaya’s The Art of the Brick exhibition for free with a full paying adult. The installation has been housed in The Great Northern Warehouse, Manchester, since November.

The Liverpool Echo reports the deal, which will save £9.50 for every child who visits with an adult.

The Art of the Brick statue

The Art of the Brick displays a series of models dreamt up by the LCP, the most famous of which is Yellow. That sculpture depicts a yellow person pulling open their own chest, with LEGO bricks cascading out.

“I like using LEGO bricks as a medium because I enjoy seeing people’s reaction to artwork created from something with which they are familiar,” Sawaya said when the exhibition launched in Manchester. “My goal is to elevate this simple plaything to a place it has never been before. I also appreciate the cleanliness of the LEGO brick. The right angles. The distinct lines. But, from a distance, those right angles and distinct lines offer new perspectives, changing to curves.”

An interactive LEGO zone allows children to be inspired by their visit and get hands-on.

Tickets are available at The Art of the Brick website.
