"Reconnect with your Inner Child. 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. 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. "
