Travelers can now get a bird's eye view of downtown Houston thanks to a 40,000 piece LEGO® display at Bush Airport, Terminal C near gate C-1.
This art piece is representation of Houston inside the “triangle” of I-45, I-69/US-59, and Buffalo Bayou. It took nearly three years for the Houston Brick Club to complete this 40,000-piece microscale of downtown Houston. Notable landmarks include Toyota Center, Minute Maid Park, Discovery Green, the George R. Brown Convention Center, Houston City Hall and the central business district.
This loan to Houston Airports was made possible by a collaboration between the Houston Brick Club and the Pearl Fincher Museum of Fine Arts. This display was recently featured in the exhibition No Limits: The Artistry of Bricks. The exhibition included more than 20 works that elevate the toy to the realm of contemporary art.
