"Build! Toy Brick Art"

Thanks to a cutesy movie currently in favor with most young kids--Legos are again all the rage among the pre-teen set. However, as "Build! Toy Brick Art" an ongoing exhibit (through September 28) at the Heard Museum reveals, Legos are hardly child's play anymore. The display includes dozens of works by "brick artists" that go way beyond anything in the Legos Star Wars set. Check out the 55,000-piece, 10- by 3.5-foot replica cover of Action Comics No.1. or the Angry Birds, coyotes, and bicycles made from tiny plastic bricks.
