Fans visiting Wizard World Comic Con NYC Experience later this month may want to make a side trip to Times Square... Not just for the bright lights, but also for THE ART OF THE BRICK®, the world’s largest display of LEGO® art ever assembled, which opened on Friday at Discovery Times Square, 226 West 44th St.

THE ART OF THE BRICK®, a captivating exhibition of intriguing works of art made exclusively from one of the most recognizable toys in the world, LEGO®, was constructed using only LEGO toy bricks by renowned contemporary artist Nathan Sawaya is coming to New York after enjoying record-breaking runs to sold-out crowds in Singapore, Taiwan and Australia.

“I want to have the broadest impact possible to inspire people to change the way they view the world and the way they think about art,” said Sawaya. “What better way to do that than in the heart of New York City, at the crossroads of the world - Times Square.”

The Discovery Times Square collection will be the world’s biggest and most elaborate display of LEGO art ever. Sawaya will be creating brand- new, never-before-seen works exclusively for this New York City premiere with more than 100 works of art made out of millions and millions of little LEGO bricks.

“This will be my largest showing of artwork to date and I’ve got some very exciting surprises in store for New York, of course, being it’s my hometown,” said Sawaya. “Discovery Times Square is known for bringing epic collections of unique and immersive exhibits to New York so to be able to have my collection of sculptures exhibited here has profound meaning to me.”

Guests will have the opportunity to get an up-close and in-person view of the iconic, pop culture fan favorite, Yellow, a life-size sculpture of a man ripping his chest open with thousands of sunshine yellow LEGO bricks cascading from the cavity. In addition, visitors will be able to walk under a 20-foot-long T-Rex dinosaur skeleton made out of bricks and come face-to-face with a giant LEGO skull.

THE ART OF THE BRICK at Discovery Times Square runs until January 5, 2014.
