art in the gardenThere’s still time to catch “Art in the Garden” at the San Antonio Botanical Garden, the annual collaboration with Blue Star Contemporary, since it’s on view through the end of January. Founded by Bill FitzGibbons, Blue Star’s Director of Special Projects, this year’s “Art in the Garden” is by long-time Chicago artist Richard Hunt.

The Garden has now struck out on its own in finding a new artistic collaborator: LEGO® Bricks. Starting this Saturday, they will present 27 sculptures that make up 14 displays created from nearly 500,000 LEGO® bricks. The exhibition, entitled Nature Connects (get it?), will be placed throughout the Garden. Each sculpture has an internal structure and is covered with LEGO® bricks, individually snapped in place by artist Sean Kenney.
