I can’t wait to get back down to Louisville to check out new exhibit at the Louisville Slugger Museum & Factory. My last trip to the ‘Ville was about a week before “Big Leagues Little Bricks” opened. I had a baseball itch and couldn’t wait another week to scratch it. It won’t take much to twist my arm to double back this summer, though.

Open now, “Big Leagues Little Bricks” features sculptures, portraits and stadium replicas created with LEGO┬« bricks. Giddy up!

The Joey Votto portrait pictured above was created by renowned artist Sean Kenney, one of only 13 LEGO Certified Professionals in the world. The Votto peice measures 25″ x 30″ and is built with over 5,000 LEGO pieces. Other work by Kenney in the exhibit include portraits of baseball superstars, conceptual sculptures of iconic baseball moments and a replica of Wrigley Field.

Other works in the exhibit include a replica of Milwaukee’s Miller Park created by Tim Kaebisch, and replicas of Marlins Park, Yankee Stadium and PNC Park by Jason Burik. All of them look amazing.

Along with stunning artwork, Big Leagues, Little Bricks provides a hands-on opportunity for guests to build their own art created with LEGO bricks.

The exhibit is included with your admission to LSM&F and runs through September 2. LEGO KidsFest is in Louisville April 5-7, if you want to make a LEGO weekend out of it.
