Van Gogh Mosaic Build at MIA – To Be Continued November 7th @ Brickmania Toyworks
Last night we participated in the Minneapolis Institute of Arts’ “Nerd Thursday” event by hosting a mosaic build of Vincent Van Gogh’s “Olive Trees.” Well over 1000 people attended the event and our building tables were definitely the most exciting place to be during the evening. In spite of poor lighting, obnoxiously loud music, shortages of crucial pieces and not enough tables to build on, we still managed to complete about 80% of the 4 x 5 foot mosaic piece in the three hour time frame.
Brickmania would like to invite everyone to complete the mosaic at our next Brickmania Toyworks Open House on Thursday, November 7th, from 5-9pm. Our open house is free and we have tons of great displays built by Brickmania and other local LEGO enthusiasts. Brickmania Toyworks is located at 1620 Central Avenue NE, suite 170, Minneapolis, MN 55413 (note our building address is on Central, but we actually have our own street entrance on the north side of the building near the intersection of 18th Ave and Jackson Street NE).
The finished mosaic will look like this, but MUCH bigger!
