New Summer Exhibition at Beverley Art Gallery : 'Brick City'
After the huge success of last summer's 'Brick Wonders' exhibition at Beverley Art Gallery, LEGOÂ® will return to the Treasure House this month with 'Brick City'.
The 'Brick City' Exhibition, created once again by Warren Elsmore, will be on display in Beverley Art Gallery from Saturday, 16 July until Saturday, 10 September, with free admission, and no need to book in advance.
The exhibition is a celebration of iconic buildings from cities around the world, carefully recreated in LEGOÂ® bricks. Visitors can take their ultimate world tour and discover highlights of cities across five continents, taking in lively celebrations in Rio through to New York, Copenhagen, Romantic Venice, Japan and extravagant Las Vegas.
The exhibition will be a chance to enjoy discovering new urban highlights, as well as some more recognisable iconic structures. Visitors will be able to spot surprising common ground between buildings created thousands of years apart, such as the Roman Colosseum and the 2012 London Olympic Park, and take in the awe-inspiring centrepiece, London St Pancras station, measuring two metres by four metres and built from over 180,000 standard bricks.
Councillor Mike Medini, portfolio holder for cultural and leisure assets, said : "Our blockbuster exhibition last summer was so popular that we simply had to ask Warren Elsmore to come back again this year! 'Brick City' promises to be a fun experience for all the family, and I look forward to another busy summer at Beverley Art Gallery!"
Nial Adams, Museums and Archives manager, added: "We are very excited to be able to host another great exhibition by the brilliant Warren Elsmore and his team. And this year, there will be no need to book in advance, so it will be the perfect family trip out this summer."
