 The California Science Center adds “PERNiCiEM: The Endangered Species Connection” to its The Art of the Brick” exhibition currently on display at the California Science Center, which has been closed to the public for more than a year. “The Art of the Brick” is already the world’s largest display of LEGO® art.

 “PERNiCiEM,” Latin for “extinction,” is a dramatic three-dimensional exhibition of some of the world’s most endangered species, created by “The Art of the Brick” LEGO® artist Nathan Sawaya and photographer Dean West. The exhibition features 13 large-scale sculptures – created from LEGO bricks – of endangered animals, including the humpback whale, polar bear and lowland gorilla, each presented with a cinematic image of their natural environment. 

 The new exhibition is included with the price of paid tickets to “The Art of the Brick.”  

Due to Covid-19 safety precautions, advance ticket purchases and reservations are required. Details are available at
