Join the GRPM for the opening day of our newest exhibit Sean Kenney's Wild Connections Made with LEGO® Bricks on Saturday, November 7! Explore beautiful works of art made from LEGO® bricks to explore animal endangerment, the balance of ecosystems, and mankind’s relationship with nature in the new exhibit Wild Connections.
Produced by Imagine Exhibitions, Wild Connections depicts important topics that the New York artist, Sean Kenney, holds dear, from protecting an animals’ habitat, to planting a garden, or using a bike instead of a car.
Wild Connections further shows that just as LEGO® pieces interconnect, everything in nature is interconnected in a delicate balance. The narratives, along with the intricate displays, also explore the importance of conservation, the balance of ecosystems, predator/prey relationships, as well as the relationships between humankind and the natural world.
Most importantly, the exhibition allows visitors to appreciate both nature and the sculptures as something beautiful, and to inspire them to go home and create something wonderful themselves.
Open 9 AM to 5 PM Monday-Friday and 10 AM to 5 PM Saturday-Sunday. Timed tickets on the hour are now on sale, and will be $12 for adults and $7 for children with discounts for Kent County residents and Museum members. Advance ticketing REQUIRED. Visit grpm.org for more information
