Bricktionary: The ultimate LEGO® A-Z makes it world premiere at Cincinnati Museum Center
Over 150 custom-built LEGO® models click together March 18; waitlist for tickets now open
CINCINNATI - Bricktionary: The ultimate LEGO® A-Z is coming to Cincinnati. Cincinnati Museum Center (CMC) will host the world premiere of the new exhibition clicked to life by the creativity and talent of Ryan “Brickman” McNaught, star of LEGO® Masters Australia. The exhibition opens March 18.
Featuring more than 150 custom-built LEGO® models, Bricktionary is inspired by nothing more than simple letters and boundless imagination. From leaping orcas that tower overhead to Saturn V rockets that stretch from floor to ceiling, the exhibition pushes the limits of what’s possible with LEGO® bricks.
“We’re excited to host the world premiere of this incredible exhibition that showcases not just what’s possible with LEGO®, but that anything is possible with LEGO®,” said Elizabeth Pierce, president and CEO of Cincinnati Museum Center. “Through the mastery of Brickman, Bricktionary demonstrates the endless versatility, ageless allure and STEM applications of LEGO®; anything is possible by anyone when you’re building with LEGO® bricks.”
Bricktionary is more than a stunning gallery of masterpieces by the southern hemisphere’s only LEGO® certified professional; Bricktionary is about you! If you can dream it, you can build it. The exhibition offers free build areas where you can click together whatever inspires you. In Bricktionary: The ultimate LEGO® A-Z, LEGO® becomes the building bricks of imagination.
The exhibition encourages amateur and expert builders alike to get involved through interactive build zones. Build a LEGO® brick model to survive an earthquake and test it against the Bricktionary earthquake machine. How long can your build last? You can also make your creations work for you by designing a LEGO® brick robot. Create a tail-wagging canine companion, a room-cleaning wizard, a deep-sea diving explorer or whatever your imagination dreams up.
A fun-filled journey for families, kids and adults, Bricktionary: The ultimate LEGO® A-Z opens March 18 at Cincinnati Museum Center.
Join the waitlist for exclusive priority access for tickets. Tickets are available for waitlist members on February 13. Tickets will be available for the public on February 20. Visit cincymuseum.org/bricktionary for more information.
