Art of the (Gold) Brick
Both fine art and LEGO lovers have united in praise of the work of artist Nathan Sawaya. When he joined forces with DC Comics to create his "The Art of the Brick: DC Comics" exhibitions, we knew we would see some cool stuff. How little did we realize just how cool it would be.
Yes, that's Booster Gold built entirely out of LEGO bricks. Booster is just one of many, many DC Comics figures, covers, and other inspired pieces (including a life-sized Batmobile) now on exhibition at the Powerhouse Museum in Sydney, Australia.

How great is it that Booster Gold, a former janitor inspired by a museum exhibition of heroes to travel back in time to become a hero himself, now has his own statue in a museum display of heroes? That's Boosterrific!
The exhibition runs through April in Sydney before moving on to the next leg of its worldwide tour (wherever that might be). So if you happen to be in Sydney before May, drop in and say hello to our favorite hero. Otherwise, cross your fingers. Booster Gold may be coming to a museum near you.
Thanks to The Blot and iron_paw for bringing this amazing sculpture to our attention.
