"Big Leagues, Little Bricks" features ballparks made out of Legos

Posted: Updated:

It takes thousands of little LEGO Bricks to recreate some of the country's biggest ballparks. Keith Kaiser checks out a new exhibit at the Louisville slugger museum.

An original exhibition, Big Leagues, Little Bricks, featuring sculptures, portraits and stadium replicas created with LEGO bricks is now open at Louisville Slugger Museum & Factory.

The exhibit is included with your admission to LSM&F and runs through September 2.

The exhibition showcases renowned artist Sean Kenney, one of only 13 LEGO Certified Professionals in the world.

Kenney's pieces include portraits of baseball superstars Derek Jeter, Joey Votto and Buster Posey, dynamic conceptual sculptures of iconic baseball moments and a replica of historic Wrigley Field.

Another display is a replica of Milwaukee's Miller Park built by Tim Kaebisch while he was a graduate student at the Milwaukee School of Engineering.

The Miller Park creation utilizes more than 35,000 LEGO bricks and has a retractable roof that actually moves.

Fans will also find other stadium replicas built by Jason Burik, including Marlins Park, Yankee Stadium and PNC Park.

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