The Art Department was exposed to a whole new light of
demonstrating the potential of creativity and the power of imagination by
talking a trip to the Cincinnati Museum Center. The group took in a movie at
the Omnimax theater and then a stroll through the special exhibit 'The Art of
the Brick.' The Art of the Brick featured over 100 works of art by contemporary
artist Nathan Sawaya. But rather than paint and canvas, Sawaya's masterpieces
were made entirely of LEGO bricks. Millions and millions of little LEGO bricks.
The students were exposed to art history, from classic works like the Mona
Lisa, Starry Night, The Scream and American Gothic to historic works like the
Sphinx, the Venus de Milo and the Thinker. The students continued to explore
series of life-size human figures, a 20-foot-long T-Rex skeleton and many more
original works created by the artist.
