Louisville Zoo guests have through May 5 to see the three-sculpture preview of Sean Kenney’s Nature Connects: The Plight of Endangered Wildlife exhibit. Featuring a larger-than-life snow leopard, whooping crane and polar bear created from nearly 250,000 LEGO® bricks, the preview is part of the Party for the Planet: A Month-Long Celebration of the Earth, powered by Louisville Gas and Electric Company and Kentucky Utilities Company.
Brought to you by Kenney, the same artist who created last year’s Nature Connects exhibit, the complete 13-piece sculpture exhibit is scheduled for Spring 2018. The three-piece preview is free with Zoo admission.
