Bricks and Stones
Sean Kenney is an artist and children's book author. He has more than five million LEGO® bricks at his studio in Brooklyn, New York, which he uses to create sculptures and wall murals. Kenney merges vintage tapestry aesthetics with op-art patterns to create abstract compositions that recall gemstones, such as jade and jasper. Accompanying Kenney's artwork are actual stones on loan from the Idaho Museum of Mining & Geology and Stewart's Gem Shop. Rich in history, these spectacular gems present many facets of a gemstone's transformation. Together, the wall murals and gems offer a unique opportunity for admiring dazzling representations of beauty in natural and artistic creations.
