Art of the Brick
The LEGO “Scream” image was part of a recent Art of the Brick exhibit at the New York Hall of Science, the largest exhibit of LEGO art in the world.
The museum is closed currently due to the Coronavirus pandemic, but you can still tour some of the exhibits, virtually of course.
- Read more about the Art of the Brick exhibit on this “what to do this weekend” posting before the museum closed to the public in March.
BrickLink is an online marketplace to buy, sell or trade LEGO parts, sets and minifigures at discount.
Consider it as a kind of an eBay or Craigslist for the popular toy brand, including for replacement parts that have already gone missing from birthday or holiday gifts.
