Remember all of those LEGO sculptures you were so proud of when you were little? Well, they've all been put to shame thanks to IN PIECES, the newest exhibition presented by Avant Gallery on view now at Openhouse in NYC.
A brilliant collaboration between sculptor Nathan Sawaya and photographer Dean West, IN PIECES exhibits photographs with an America flare, which feature LEGO sculptures that camouflage flawlessly into the scenes (you have to look pretty carefully to spot them). The exhibition juxtaposes the photography and sculpture together, so you can get a good idea about the actual construction and scale of the LEGO pieces. Such an amazing, creative idea will no doubt remind people about how much they love LEGOs and maybe even inspire a few to dig into their old stashes and see what they can create. IN PIECES is on view until March 17th.
