This exhibition will be on view October 8, 2022–February 24, 2023.

We’re excited to celebrate the 10th anniversary of Think Outside the Brick: The Creative Art of LEGO®. CMA’s annual holiday celebration of the creative potential of LEGO® bricks returns, featuring an enormous model of Columbus built collaboratively by the Ohio LEGO User’s Group (OhioLUG). The exhibition includes the return of familiar landmarks, imaginative creations, and new additions.

Admission to Think Outside the Brick is included with general admission. Join us in honoring and exploring the diverse and vibrant world of Hispanic culture for National Hispanic Heritage Month. This special opportunity allows the Museum to spotlight Hispanic heritage; however, our commitment to sharing Hispanic communities' art and creativity extends all year. Take a moment with this work by Veronica Fernandez, one of the artists in PRESENT ’23. Veronica Fernandez’s paintings draw from her own memories, family struggles, and inherited trauma to illustrate the complexity of contemporary American identity and intergenerational relationships. She combines images from her childhood photo albums with art historical references and personal recollections to create evocative, nostalgic scenes. The artist says, "Growing up, I was very distanced from my roots. I’m Dominican, Puerto Rican and Bolivian. I’m very mixed . . . I think a lot of people in the U.S. grapple with this kind of assimilation into American culture." Veronica Fernandez, Through Steam (Lay Your Burdens Down), 2022. Acrylic and oil on canvas. Promised gift of the Scantland Collection
