Sean Kenney’s Nature POP!

January 14 @ 9:00 am - 4:00 pm

|Recurring Event (See all)

An event every day that begins at 9:00 am, repeating until May 1, 2022

Art with LEGO® Bricks

Bring the entire family to experience Sean Kenney’s Nature POP! a touring exhibit and highlight of our 2022 Season of Awe, Wonder and Reconnecting.

Reconnect with your Inner Child.  Making its Florida premiere, 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 these 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.

Each sculpture’s site placement and landscaping were carefully curated.  The Mounts Botanical Horticulture Team designed the sculpture locations specifically for each piece, with a broader theme in mind.  As each colorful sculpture stands in contrast to its greater surroundings, its location adds to the WOW factor!
