Think Outside the Brick

On View November 10, 2018 – February 22, 2019

Columbus Museum of Art’s annual holiday celebration of the creative potential of LEGO® bricks returns. Bring your friends and family and celebrate the season by connecting with LEGO® and each other. Think Outside the Brick features an enormous collaboratively-built model of Columbus. You’ll find familiar landmarks and imaginative creations – all constructed by the members of OhioLUG, a group of adults that have (re)discovered the joy of building with LEGO®. New this year, enjoy Ohio State themed Buckeye art.
