INDIANAPOLIS, Ind. – A new exhibit opening up at the Indianapolis Zoo brings together toys and nature by featuring a dozen animal sculptures made of LEGO pieces.  Each sculpture represents an endangered species.

The “Nature Connects: Art with LEGO Bricks” pieces include more than 800,000 LEGO bricks. New York-based artist Sean Kenney designed and created each of the pieces, which include a monarch butterfly, jeweled chameleon and polar bear.

The sculptures are placed throughout the White River Gardens. Visitors will have a chance to interact with the exhibit by creating their own LEGO designs and also learn about animal conservationists.

This new exhibit opens to the public on May 21 and will be open daily through Labor Day . Zoo members will be able to get a preview of the exhibit  May 19 and 20.  Access to the exhibit is included with general admission to the zoo.
