Imagine an entire exhibit devoted solely to LEGO structures.
That vision will become a reality. On July 28 and 29, from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m., the Moose Jaw Western Development Museum in partnership with the Saskatchewan LEGO Users Group (SLUG) will have the first annual Brickspo. The Brickspo will showcase LEGO creations on a variety of themes.
“I think LEGO is something that just about all of us can relate to. We’ve all played with it in some way, shape or form at some time in our lives,” said museum manager Kathy Fitton. “So it might give some people some inspiration for some things they can try at home.”
She said the SLUG has come to the model trade show at the museum with its LEGO creations. It was then that an idea for an exhibit only on LEGO should be brought to the museum.
“It’s been in the works for a little while now, but we’re really looking forward to it,” said Fitton. “There’s going to be quite a few — I don’t have an exact number — but quite a few pieces, some large, some small. They’re going to do some demonstrations also with radio control pieces so there’s going to be quite a bit to see.”
