Since their debut in 1949, Legos have become much more than mere toys. Spawning movies, games, competitions and six theme parks, the bricks are now the focus of an exhibit at the Minnesota Landscape Arboretum.

“Nature Connects: Art with Lego Bricks,” which opened at the Chaska, Minnesota, site in mid-May, features 13 nature-inspired Lego sculptures, including a giant snapping turtle, family of deer, monarch butterfly on milkweed, a hummingbird and more.

The exhibit, which runs through August 30, is the debut of a new traveling collection by artist Sean Kenney of Brooklyn, New York.
