Visit the Memphis Zoo and see the Nature Connects LEGO Brick Sculptures by award-winning artist and “professional kid,” Sean Kenney.  The sculptures are bigger than ever and focused on the plight of endangered wildlife, including the largest sculpture built to date by Sean Kenney, an adult mama polar bear and her cubs, weighing 625 pounds.

These all-new sculptures are a “must-see” event … and it’s all included with your general admission ticket!

The event will continue until September 1.
