Sean Kenney’s Nature Connects® will be arriving at Botanica next week! This exhibit will feature 15 different sculptures built with over 330,000 LEGO® bricks. You can be the first to see these beautiful sculptures during our VIP Opening Night on May 9th and our Family Grand Opening & Fireworks Display on May 10th. It will be open to the public from May 11-September 19.

One of the unique sculptures that you'll have the chance to see is this life-size bird feeder with American Goldfinches. You can find them in our Beverly Blue Garden.

FUN FACT: American Goldfinches can be found at feeders any time of year, but most abundantly during winter.

Each of the Goldfinches in this sculpture are about 6 inches long and are mounted to a real bird feeder. They include 1,078 LEGO® pieces, and were designed with multiple postures and set up to look as realistically posed as possible (Clearly, LEGO® birds eat LEGO® pieces😅).

Learn more about Nature Connects® by visiting www.seankenney.com.

Thank you to the Goldfinch sponsors Les and Kay Hole, and our presenting sponsor Emprise Bank!
