I LEGO MoMA

I'm glad to see that AFOLs aren't the only ones having fun with LEGO renditions of artworks. Check out this from the staff at MoMA. The rest of this post is a direct quote from their blog article:
In that spirit, and as an excuse to spend a little time on a Friday afternoon playing with Legos, we decided to whip up some pieces in MoMA’s collection in Lego form. After spending a few bucks online getting a couple bags of mixed bricks, we went to town. Due to the limitations from the random assortment, some of the highlights of the Collection we would love to have remade (Broadway Boogie Woogie and Vir Heroicus Sublimis, I’m looking at you) couldn’t be constructed.
The obvious place to start is Richard Serra, with Equal (Corner Prop Piece) and One Ton Prop (House of Cards).

Of course, you can just as easily go for minimal works, such as Ellsworth Kelly’s Black and Yellow from the series Line Form Color.
And where would be without the Suprematist Composition: White on White of Kazimir Malevich?

And here’s Sol LeWitt’s Floor Structure.
Limited by greens, here’s a mere detail of Donald Judd’s Untitled (Stack).

A regular in the Sculpture Garden is Anthony Caro’s Midday.

Finally, this charming rendition of Rothko’s No. 5/No. 22 was put together by John Wilson.
