Produced by Imagine Exhibitions, Wild Connections depicted important topics that the New York artist, Sean Kenney, holds dear, from protecting an animals’ habitat, to planting a garden, or using a bike instead of a car.

Wild Connections showed that just as LEGO® pieces interconnect, everything in nature is interconnected in a delicate balance. The narratives, along with the intricate displays, also explored the importance of conservation, the balance of ecosystems, predator/prey relationships, as well as the relationships between humankind and the natural world.

The exhibition allowed visitors to appreciate both nature and the sculptures as something beautiful, and to inspired them to go home and create something wonderful themselves.
