Late for a Very Important Date

 


Ooops! Yesterday came and went so
fast that I didn't get my post up.

So here's the scoop. Starting tomorrow
yep tomorrow I will (hopefully) be posting
for at least 26 days. 

It is time for the April Blogging Challenge.
My theme this year is
"The ABC's of Crafting"

I will be exploring the history behind a specific
craft each day. There will be no posting on
Sundays except for tomorrow. Some letters will 
not have a post due to the letter ex: X.

So swing by each day and see what is going on
in the world of crafts.

**************************************

Mr. Ken and I would like to wish all of you
a blessed Easter!

A Fun Adventure -Part 2

 

I am back with part 2 of our adventure.
We start with an artist studio completely
out of bricks!



 

 
A life size pencil.

 
"Fun" spelled out in bricks.

 

 
This sculpture was amazing! The blue
lighting set if off so well that you really
thought someone was actually swimming!

 

 
Mr. Ken met a new friend. Ha !

 
Roar!!! A life size dinosaur...oh my!

 
We had lots of fun.



 A popular sculpture with kids.
His guts are falling out!

 

 
A miniature of the whole exhibit.

 

 
Hello!

 
This is my favorite sculpture because it
is a replica of the fountain outside of
Union Station where this exhibit was.
Plus it was actually working!

 


  


It was a two thumbs up vote from Mr.
Ken. We had such a fun time, it exceeded
everything I thought the exhibit would be
and since he knew nothing about what we
were seeing, Mr. Ken thought it was fantastic!

If you ever have a chance to see Mr. Sawaya's
work go see it! You will truly be amazed.

Hope you enjoyed these two posts.



~~Tomorrow I will pop back in for a post
on what is coming to Dreaming in April,
stop backby to see what I will be posting
about for ALL of April.

A Fun Adventure--Part 1



Hello!
Today, I am going to share with you an
adventure Mr. Ken and I went on about
month ago. Wow, time flies.
Anyway I took him down to our Union
Station to an exhibit called " The Art of
the Brick."

 
This was an exhibit by acclaimed artist
Nathan Sawaya.  Mr. Sawaya is based
in New York and creates his sculptures
with a particular toy. His art focuses on
large scale sculptures using LEGO bricks.
He is the first artist to bring the bricks to
the art world.


Sawaya grew up playing with the
same toys we did plus the LEGOS
in Oregon. He moved to New York
to attend college at NYU and become
a lawyer. The legal world was a tough
one and the evenings he used the LEGOS
as a relaxation tool.

 

He realized that he would rather create
that fight more legal battles so he left
his law career behind and made a move
toward creating LEGO art.
Now he is an author, speaker and one of
the most popular artists of all time and
he does this with LEGOS!

Below you will see many of Sawaya's
sculptures. some have a description and
some don't. I was so enthralled while
going through this exhibit that I had to
remind myself to take pictures, :)
And yes, each sculpture is glued together.
Whew!

 

One brick at a time.


 
 
 
This one was on a canvas.
Sorry for the smushed pics,
Blogger is being naughty!


 

 
 

 

A beautiful illuminated sculpture.


 

It's reflection on the floor.


 

 

 
 

 

These sculptures were life size!


 

 

 

 
 

 

 

 

This one was hanging from the ceiling!


 

 

 

 

I am not any kind of artist where the
bricks are concerned but I think if I
were to focus really hard I might be
able to make this one.




Well, this ends Part 1, on Wednesday I
will share Part 2.

What did you think. Unbelievable huh??
