Time to get your brick on!
The Denver Museum of Nature & Science (DMNS) is hosting an amazing exhibit right now, The Art of the Brick, which features the LEGO creations of artist Nathan Sawaya. So far, over 6 million people around the world have seen the traveling exhibit, which has shown on every continent except Antarctica.
Union Station has teamed up with The Art of the Brick to give the people of Colorado an opportunity to show off their LEGO skills. The contest is a challenge to build the absolute best LEGO replica of Denver’s Union Station that can be built. Anyone can enter, as the contest is open to all ages.
