The Art of the Brick®

September 29 – December 20, 2015

Kicking off the Bedford Gallery's 2015-16 exhibition season, themed “Art + Play,” the gallery hosted The Art of the Brick, an exhibition featuring large-scale sculptures constructed out of iconic LEGO® bricks. New York artist Nathan Sawaya creates awe-inspiring works out of this unlikely material, painstakingly crafting beautiful, playful pieces, and transforming the popular toy into something new.

In addition to Sawaya’s sculptures, the Bedford will exhibit In Pieces, a collaboration between Sawaya and photographer Dean West, who have created a series of large-scale tableau compositions incorporating Sawaya’s LEGO sculptures into West’s photographs.

The Bedford will present an ancillary exhibition of sculpture by San Francisco artist Jud Bergeron titled Became. His playful, colorful toy-like pieces reflect on the experience of becoming a parent.
