Legos – we all grew up with it, and while it has largely remained a toy for children, it has captivated our hearts so much that we can still enjoy it as adults. Thankfully, the world has Lego expos and conventions for those still young at heart, such as at Bricks LA 2017, a Lego exhibit. Taking place at the Pasadena Conference Center this Saturday and Sunday from 10am to 5pm on both days, this exhibit for all things Legos contains multiple aisles of carefully curated works of art constructed with Lego pieces. Visitors pay a simple admission of $10 to gain access to a floor full of Lego sculptures, landscapes, artwork, Lego machines, and more. While visitors may interact with the master builders behind some of these works, most of the tables generally have the Lego artworks with no one else around to inquire about the work. The center of the floor primarily contains Lego art on display, while the outer areas have other things. Bricks LA generally places all of the vendors, most of which sell Lego sets and other paraphernalia, on one side of the floor. The front area usually has some of the interactive demos, such as train tracks and a conveyor system that resembles a Rube Goldberg machine.

If you love Legos and/or art in general, you owe it to yourself to check out Bricks LA some time this weekend. Give Bricks LA a like on Facebook and a follow on Twitter. For an event centered on toys, Bricks LA does not always have a bunch of crazy children running amok, as visitors consist mostly of young adults rather than children. Sure you could see everything in less than an hour, but at that low admission price, Bricks LA makes for a fun activity that anyone can enjoy, and it also makes for an awesome photo collection.
