Sean Kenney’s Nature Connects Made with LEGO® Bricks, an award-winning and record-breaking exhibition that uses beautiful works of art made from simple toy blocks to explore animal endangerment, the balance of ecosystems, and mankind’s relationship with nature is coming to Klehm Arboretum & Botanic Garden in Rockford, Illinois this summer, beginning June 11, 2022.

Produced by Imagine Exhibitions, Nature Connects depicts important topics that the New York artist, Sean Kenney, holds dear, such as protecting an animals’ habitat or planting a garden. Nature Connects further shows that just as LEGO® bricks interconnect, everything in nature is interconnected in a delicate balance. The narratives, along with the intricate displays, also explore the importance of conservation, the balance of ecosystems, predator/prey relationships, and the relationships between humankind and the natural world.

Klehm Arboretum & Botanic Garden is Rockford’s “living museum”, filled with rare trees, unique features, and special gardens such as the Nancy Olson Children’s Garden. With over 2 miles of paved paths and over 3 miles of unpaved trails, the 155-acre botanic garden and arboretum is an ideal setting for guests of all ages to explore and enjoy Nature Connects.

Come explore the beauty and wonder of Sean Kenney’s Nature Connects Made with LEGO® Bricks, open daily to the public from 9:00 AM to 4:00 PM, 7 days a week, for a limited engagement from June 11 to September 11, 2022. Plan your visit today!
