“This year’s event, held before the COVID-19 pandemic forced the museum to temporarily close, tied into the center’s new LEGO-theme exhibition, The Art of the Brick, which features more than 100 LEGO interpretations of classic art from artist Nathan Sawaya. Feeling inspired by the eclectic exhibit, Sion’s team decided to embrace not one but two fully realized—and completely distinct—themes: LEGO bricks and Mars. While the two classic concepts don’t naturally seem to go together, Sion said her team was inspired by NASA and LEGO Group’s history of collaboration on STEM-related projects for children and adults.
But before guests could travel through space, they enjoyed cocktails in an upbeat, color-blocked space inspired by the classic toys. “Ironically, unlike the challenges that last year’s dog theme initially presented, this year’s featured exhibit actually elevated the concept of LEGO for us, and provided the perfect artistic backdrop for the black-tie fundraiser,” noted Sion.” via BizBash
