Just as LEGO® pieces interconnect, everything in nature is also connected in a delicate balance. This artful exhibition illustrates that balance in the beautiful, inspirational setting of Green Animals Topiary Garden.

Using the beloved toy bricks as a medium, the larger-than-life sculptures in Nature Connects present a playful spin on traditional sculptural art, making it accessible to people of all ages and backgrounds.

Marvel at artist Sean Kenney’s gravity-defying and astoundingly precise structures and become inspired to explore their world in new ways. From the proud majesty of an antlered buck to the ponderous mass of a Galapagos tortoise; from the delicate suspension of a hummingbird on the edge of a flower to the spectacular feather display of a peacock, Sean’s art sparks a joyful sense of wonder at the natural world.

In addition to the 14 sculptures to be exhibited at Green Animals, Sean Kenney’s Bonsai Tree will be displayed inside the Welcome Center at The Breakers.

At times whimsical, gripping and awe-inspiring, this exhibition will inspire budding artists, ecologists, and builders to dream big!
