A miniature world created wholly from Lego is making its way to Wolverhampton Art Gallery in April. The exhibition, set to fill three rooms is ready to take over the gallery by transporting you through time and space with its display of landmarks, cities and many of our world’s ancient wonders, in plastic brick form. Brick Wonders is a jovial world conjured up by the artist Warren Elsmore and manages to present our planet as we know it as a playful and enthusiastic caricature. What better way to escape from the harsh realities of Trump and Brexit? Brick Wonders aims to challenges the elitist systems that dictate what we perceive as ‘art’. Its naivety and frivolity allows a sense of escapism within a setting that enables us to view Lego in a whole new way. It’s also loads of fun and art that visitors of any age can appreciate. Five family fun Brick Wonders of Wolverhampton Workshops will run on on Saturday 8th of April with limited spaces available, so early booking advised. Like Emmet said, awesome.

Tue 4 Apr – Mon 5 Jun at Wolverhampton Art Gallery, Lichfield Street, Wolverhampton, WV1 1DU. 10.30am – 4.30pm except Sundays: 11am – 4pm. Single Visit Tickets – Adults £4, Children £2. www.wolverhamptonart.org.uk
