Lego Exhibit Coming to Billings

Posted: Updated:
BILLINGS - The Yellowstone Art Museum aims to bring out the kid in its visitors this fall.

Nathan Sawaya's "Art of the Brick" exhibit starts at the museum on September 4th. Sawaya takes Lego bricks, and turns them into life-size sculptures, sometimes using up to 500-thousand bricks.

YAM Assistant Curator Liz Hardy said the art museum is taking the exhibit a step further, and involving the public.

"We want your unwanted, used Legos that are in pretty good condition, because we are going to set up a nice hands-on area here in the museum," she said. "Once you've seen the exhibit, you can start interacting with the Lego bricks and use something of your own here."

The exhibit starts September 4th and runs for three months. You can bring any Lego bricks you'd like to donate to the Yellowstone Art Museum at 401 N. 27th St.

    Firefighters are wrapping up their work on a blaze northwest of Cody. The Dillworth Fire, which was visible from the Chief Joseph Highway, grew to only six acres. It’s indicative of the mild fire season in the Shoshone National Forest and Yellowstone so far this summer.
