Sean Kenney’s Animal Super Powers Made with LEGO® Bricks, a brand-new exhibition featuring awe-inspiring sculptures made from LEGO® bricks, is coming to the Milwaukee County Zoo May 29 through Sept. 6. The exhibit is sponsored by Sendik’s Food Market.

From the mind of acclaimed artist, Sean Kenney, Animal Super Powers showcases larger-than-life sculptures of creatures who have evolved to possess their very own “super powers” and invites guests to learn the science behind them.

Produced by Imagine Exhibitions, Inc., Animal Super Powers is chock-full of STEAM content (Science, Technology, Engineering, Arts and Mathematics) and will inspire budding artists, engineers, zoologists, and biologists to expand their imaginations, get curious and explore in an experience that both educates and excites.
