Historic sites across Scotland are set to showcase history in LEGO form to connect with visitors of all ages during the Year of Young People 2018.
The 12-month exhibition programme featuring model brick-work by acclaimed LEGO artist Warren Elsmore will take place at Historic Environment Scotland (HES) sites across the country, including Aberdour Castle, Glasgow Cathedral and Stirling Castle, from Saturday 3 February.
The Brick Wonders and Brick History exhibitions, created by Elsmore’s highly talented team of designers and artists, focus on pivotal moments and amazing sights from around the globe, featuring everything from the seven wonders of the ancient world, scientific discoveries from the Big Bang Theory to DNA, and recent history from mobile phones to the moon landings.
Creator, Warren Elsmore, said: “We love transforming the world around us into LEGO scenes. It’s a fun way to translate history into a medium that everyone can understand and relate to, especially young people.
“Forget dry lists of kings or endless battle dates – this is history brought to life. It’s great when we see visitors making that instant connection with our projects and hope it will inspire them to learn even more about our history.”
Warren Elsmore’s Brick Wonders and Brick History models are to tour HES sites throughout Scotland until January 2019:
3 Feb-22 Apr: Brick Wonders at Aberdour Castle
28 Apr-8 Jul: Brick Wonders at Arbroath Abbey
14 Jul-23 Sep: Brick Wonders at Glasgow Cathedral
29 Sep-23 Jan: Brick Wonders at Stirling Castle
12 Oct-6 Jan: Brick History at Fort George
Entry to the exhibition is included in the normal admission price of the sites.
