A female life-size bison on exhibit was made from 45,143 LEGO bricks and is one of the largest in this unique exhibition. The twenty-seven sculptures make up fourteen large displays and were created from nearly five hundred thousand LEGO bricks. New York-based Sean Kenney is one of only eleven LEGO Certified Builders in the world granted permission by LEGO to build on their behalf. The show titled Some Assembly Required opens in October for the holiday season and is expected to break attendance as it has at other venues across the US.
