Denver Union Station is celebrating the global sensation “The Art of the Brick” exhibit now on display at the Denver Museum of Nature & Science with a special Build the Station LEGO Brick Contest this fall.
“The Art of the Brick” features works by renowned contemporary artist Nathan Sawaya, who has taken LEGO bricks from beloved toys to artistic marvels.
