An original exhibition featuring amazing sculptures, portraits, and stadium replicas built with LEGO bricks is returning to Louisville Slugger Museum & Factory. Big Leagues, Little Bricks opens Saturday, March 4th, 2017 and runs through January 7th, 2018. The popular exhibit is included in the general admission price for the museum.
“This spectacular show was a real blockbuster the first time. We’ve included all the favorites from the original exhibit, created fantastic new additions, and extended the run of the show,” said Anne Jewell, VP and Museum Executive Director. “Baseball and LEGO bricks connect generations. It’s a natural to bring them together for a special kind of double play -- interpreting America’s pastime with a beloved toy.”
The exhibition showcases incredible works of art from Sean Kenney, Jason Burik and Tim Kaebisch. Kenney’s pieces in Big Leagues, Little Bricks include hip portraits of baseball superstars, dynamic conceptual sculptures of iconic baseball moments and a show-stopping replica of historic Wrigley Field (pictured above).
Artist Jason Burik contributes three incredible stadium replicas that are new to the exhibit. Cincinnati Reds fans must see Burik’s replica of Great American Ball Park (pictured above). He also pays tribute to St. Louis with a Busch Stadium replica (pictured below), and makes White Sox fans proud with a remarkable replica of Chicago’s old Comiskey Park.
Another awesome piece on display is a replica of Miller Park, home of the Milwaukee Brewers (pictured below), built by Tim Kaebisch when he was a graduate student at the Milwaukee School of Engineering. The Miller Park creation utilizes over 35,000 LEGO bricks and has a retractable roof that actually moves.
As an added bonus, Big Leagues, Little Bricks includes hands-on opportunities for guests to create their own masterpieces with LEGO bricks, and other fun programming!
