The Art of the Brick

Peak inside Nathan Sawaya's head, and you'd see millions of colorful blocks swimming around. As for the man known only as Yellow, there's no need to ask about his inner life: he opens his torso to the world, and hundreds of LEGO blocks come pouring out.

Yellow is one of more than 80 artworks starring in Sawaya's new exhibit, The Art of the Brick. The artist uses LEGO blocks for every detail of his giant sculptures, creating a form that's designed to be uniquely inspiring: "When people go see a marble statue, they appreciate it, but they don't go home and start chipping away at marble. You can really connect to this art," Sawaya told Metro Boston. The subjects, too, will prompt immediate recognition: a 20-foot-long dinosaur, an English phone booth, and a giant head from Easter Island stand among more abstract works.

Faneuil Hall Marketplace

Faneuil Hall is like no other marketplace in America. Originally a meeting place for colonists, the hall's original 18th-century structure was where revolutionaries pushed the message of "no taxation without representation" while protesting the Sugar Act in 1764. This was where Samuel Adams spurred the city to take up the call for independence, and where Daniel Webster delivered the eulogies for John Adams and Thomas Jefferson. Other historic Americans, from Susan B. Anthony to president Bill Clinton, have spoken at Faneuil Hall.

Yet while Faneuil Hall Marketplace has its roots in the past, it has changed over the years. In 1826, it expanded to include Quincy Market, and today it's also home to North Market and South Market. More than 18 million visitors shop at the market each year, making it the 4th-most visited attraction in the United States. There's more to do than shop: you can watch musicians, jugglers, and many other street performers.

It's the world's largest LEGO exhibit. it was pretty cool, but as for largest, it wasn't as big as i expected, but the art was very exciting for all ages.
