The Vast World Of Lego Art

I love LEGO, the games, the fantastic advertising campaigns, and of course all the various kits. Enough LEGO pieces have been created to total about 62 for every person on earth. And some of those pieces are being used to create art. 

LEGO blocks are one of the most beloved toys in the world, playing a role in many a person’s childhood. But for some creators, LEGO has evolved from toy to art form. In this episode, PBS’ Off Book talks to three LEGO artists who have made beautiful mosaics, amazing stop-motion videos, thoughtful sculptures, and have turned these tiny building blocks into a true artistic medium.
