Yellow by Nathan Sawaya.

Not just another brick in the wall: the first major exhibition to use LEGO bricks as its sole art medium opens today at Discovery Times Square. Created by contemporary artist Nathan Sawaya (who will show brand-new work), “The Art of the Brick” includes Yellow, an eye-popping life-size sculpture of a man made from thousands of yellow LEGO bricks, ripping his chest open to let more yellow bricks cascade from the cavity in a beautifully macabre way, as well as a 20-foot-long T-Rex dinosaur skeleton that you can walk under and an enormous LEGO skull. CNN ranked the show as one of its “Ten Global Must-See Exhibitions.”

Discovery Times Square, 226 West 44th Street, (866) 987-9692, 10am-9pm, tickets $14.50 for children 4-12, $19.50 for adults.
