Event Description

Sean Kenney’s Nature Connects Made with LEGO bricks, an award-winning and record-breaking exhibition that uses beautiful works of art made from simple toy blocks is coming to the Muscatine Art Center. The exhibition runs from November 16, 2021 through February 20, 2022 and explores animal endangerment, the balance of ecosystems, and humankind’s relationship with nature.

Produced by Imagine Exhibitions, Nature Connects depicts important topics that the New York artist, Sean Kenney, holds dear, from protecting an animal’s habitat to planting a garden or using a bike instead of a car.

Nature Connects further shows that just as LEGO pieces interconnect, everything in nature is interconnected in a delicate balance. The narratives, along with the intricate displays, also explore the importance of conservation, the balance of ecosystems, predator/prey relationships, as well as the relationships between humankind and the natural world.

Most importantly, the exhibition allows visitors to appreciate both nature and the sculptures as something beautiful, and to inspire them to go home and create something wonderful themselves.

Tom Zaller, CEO of Image Exhibitions shared, “Image Exhibitions is proud to partner with Sean Kenney to bring the creative vision of Nature Connects to Muscatine. The messages in the exhibition about our connections to nature are beautifully presented and effectively weaved into the story in the hopes of inspiring visitors to think more about mankind’s impact on the greater world around us.”
