Including a range of enormous animals, birds, and plants, over a dozen of Kenney’s brick creations currently populate the gardens. His work requires hundreds of thousands of individual bricks and tower over the rest of the natural displays.
Kenney explores themes of nature and conservation through his artwork, and this range of impressive models is no exception. As the name suggests, the LEGO artist wanted to question how we are connected to nature and how nature is connected to us. Visitors will be able to spot a hummingbird, bobbing bumblebees, and a prowling fox sneaking up on an unsuspecting rabbit.
“The larger-than-life sculptures in ‘Nature Connects’ present a playful spin on traditional sculptural art, making it accessible to people of all ages and backgrounds,” read his website. “Using the beloved toy bricks as a medium, [the exhibit] begs the question: just as LEGO bricks interconnect, how is our natural world interconnected?”
Nature Connects will be available to see every day until August 1. You’ll need to buy an entrance ticket to see the sculptures, at $12 for adults, $10 for seniors, $6 for children aged six to fifteen, and kids under five going free. Find out more and buy tickets at the Fort Worth Botanic Garden’s website. If you’re not in the area for Nature Connects, you can also catch some of Kenney’s work at Cheekwood Estate and Gardens in Nashville, Tennessee.
