Are you prepared to Think Outside the Brick? Submit your creative and original creations to CMA’s Let’s Go LEGO contest for a chance to have your work on display at the Columbus Museum of Art!
Exhibition: Think Outside the Brick: The Creative Art of LEGO
Exhibition dates: November 9, 2012-January 27, 2013
Deadline for submissions: October 14, 2012
Children, teens, adults, and family groups are invited to use their own LEGO bricks to build original creations to submit to this contest that coincides with the LEGO exhibitions on display at COSI (LEGO Castles) and CMA (Think Outside the Brick: The Creative Art of LEGO). Selected finalists from each category will be placed on display at the Columbus Museum of Art from November 9, 2012-January 27, 2013.
Contestants can choose ONE of the following building categories:
COSI’s Castle Challenge: Create a castle that defends against catapults, battering rams, and dragon attacks.
Columbus200 Challenge: Celebrate Columbus’s 200th birthday by using exactly 200 LEGOs to build an original creation of your choice. It does not need to be Columbus-themed, but it must include exactly 200 LEGO pieces.
Imagination Challenge: Build a creation that responds to the question, “What does imagination look like?”
