LEGO holds a very special place in all our hearts and it brings out the little kid in us all. To celebrate that little kid, River Market is holding a two day LEGO building spectacular. This will be held in conjunction with the Curious Flea that takes place on August 30th and 31st.
The sourcing of the LEGO started in the second week of June and it took almost two months to get the 2000 Black, 8300 White, 11100 Medium Blue, 3850 Green, 9300 Yellow, 500 Bright Orange, 1750 Reddish Brown, and 5500 Dark Blue; of 1×1 pieces from all over the world, including Belgium, Poland, Spain, Italy, France, the Netherlands, Germany and all corners of the United States and Canada.
So with all the time spent finding pieces, building images (over 15 hours of detailed computer work creating the mosaic alone), sorting the 42,300 pieces into individual bags and more, we are finally ready to get the public involved with this epic LEGO build.
Each team is given one tile to put together, and that will eventually be put up on a giant canvas that is 90 x 45 inches, creating a large mosaic to commemorate summer. This will be the first of many LEGO installs we hope to have at the market.
If you would like to participate, email us at firstname.lastname@example.org with subject line ” I want to be a part of the great summer LEGO build” and we will get in touch with you with further details on how to participate.
Back to work for us!
