The Art of the Brick®
Became by Jud Bergeron
September 29 - December 20, 2015
To kick off the
Bedford’s 2015-16 exhibition season, themed Art
+ Play, the gallery
will host The Art
of the Brick® , an exhibition featuring
large-scale sculptures constructed out of iconic LEGO® bricks. New York
artist Nathan Sawaya creates awe-inspiring works out of this unlikely
material, painstakingly crafting beautiful, playful pieces, and transforming
the popular toy into something new.
In addition to Sawaya’s sculptures, the Bedford will exhibit IN PIECES, a collaboration between Sawaya and photographer Dean West, who have created a series of large-scale tableau compositions incorporating Sawaya’s LEGO sculptures into West’s photographs.
In the Alcove Gallery: Became by Jud Bergeron
The Bedford will present an ancillary exhibition of sculpture by San Francisco artist Jud Bergeron titled Became. His playful, colorful toy-like pieces reflect on the experience of becoming a parent.
This nationally traveling exhibition has a special admission fee.
General $7, Youth (ages 5-17) $3,
