From May 24 through Sept. 15, visitors of all ages will enjoy the craftsmanship of 15 displays created entirely from LEGO bricks, found along pathways through the Arboretum’s east side. New highlights of the 2019 exhibition include a bee midflight, an oak tree sprouting from an acorn, and a pileated woodpecker with a bright crimson crest. The imaginative displays are the work of Kenney, a New York–based artist and “professional kid.”

An ant hill that offers a look at underground tunnels, with face cutouts that allow visitors to play the part of the industrious insects
