WIN: 2 sets of 4 tickets to The Art of the Brick LEGO exhibition PLUS a Playstation 3 LEGO hamper

A few months back I blogged about an exciting exhibition coming to South African soils soon… The Art of The Brick is a world-renowned LEGO® art exhibit and it’s set to be held at the brand new Watershed Exhibition Centre at the V&A Waterfront in December 2014!

LEGO® fans, kids, adults and art-lovers can look forward to up to seventy art sculptures on display created from more than a million LEGO® bricks by US artist, Nathan Sawaya.

Artworks will include his most famous work to date, Yellow, as well as other sculptures such as the T-Rex skeleton constructed from over 80,000 LEGO® bricks and measuring over six metres in length. In addition to this, visitors will see some of the world’s most famous artworks recreated with LEGO® such as Da Vinci’s Mona Lisa, Van Gogh’s Starry Night and the Venus de Milo.

Proclaimed as one of the world’s 10 must-see exhibitions by CNN, The Art of The Brick aims to inspire artwork through unique art forms and has attracted millions of visitors worldwide in exhibitions in the US, Australia and Asia.

Kathryn is a South African lifestyle blogger and mom of 2 who has been blogging daily for over 9 years! She writes about travel, health, beauty, fashion, decor and family... but not food (unless it's food she's eaten made by someone else) as she is a hopeless cook. She only wakes up early for 2 things... a red-eye flight to somewhere exotic and early morning game drives. She has just finished an extensive home renovation and would prefer to never see another box again. She's never met a chocolate or glass of bubbles that she didn't like!

  6. My mom is coming to visit me with my two (much younger) brothers in December from Namibia for the first time in many years.
