Part of this year's “Think Outside the Brick” display

Lego fans young and old will get a kick out of the latest exhibit at the Columbus Museum of Art.

“Think Outside the Brick: The Creative Art of Lego” opened Nov. 10 and runs through March 2. The annual display, which grows every year, includes a model of Columbus and many of its familiar landmarks.

“Think Outside the Brick” is a partnership with the Ohio Lego User’s Group. For the first time, this year’s exhibit will include holiday decorations in the Huntington Atrium created by OhioLUG.

In conjunction with the display, patrons will have two chances to get involved:

  • CMA will host Lego Design Challenge Day from 1-3 p.m. Dec. 30. Visitors will compete in building contests every half-hour, with prizes for winning teams.
  • Open Studio events in December will offer a chance for visitors to make their own Lego creations. Open Studio is a weekly program held from 1-4 p.m. Saturdays.

“Think Outside the Brick” is included with museum admission, which is $14 adults, $8 for seniors and students 18 and older, $5 children ages 6-17 and free for ages 5 and younger. Admission is free on Sundays and “pay what you want” from 5-9 p.m. Thursdays. The venue is closed Mondays.
