Mid-century Modern Megapalooza

Here at TBB we’ve long admired Paul Hetherington‘s vivid, vivacious LEGO celebrations of pop culture and Americana. Following his “Bricktacular West Coast Modern Show” at the Vancouver Art Museum, Paul has been sharing out more detailed pics of his architectural series on Mid-century Modern buildings from the Vancouver area. Each model is a faithful recreation, capturing the minimalist design, sleek lines, multiple levels, and seamless blending with the environment associated with the movement. Paul said he was inspired to take this deep dive into Mid-century Modern during the pandemic, a style more modest in scale and perfectly suited for LEGO bricks.

BrickCan 2019, Canada’s largest LEGO exhibition, is this weekend in Vancouver [News]

Canada’s largest and premier LEGO exhibition, BrickCan, is coming to Vancouver, British Columbia this weekend, May 4 – 5. Builders from all over the world will gather at the River Rock Theater to showcase hundreds of amazing LEGO creations. There will be activities for kids of all ages including play areas, prizes, and food, and they can even help create a giant LEGO mosaic. Vendors will also be selling minifigures, rare LEGO sets, LEGO-themed jewelry, custom gifts, and more. 

Tickets are $15 each (kids 3 and under are free) and are available online. The show floor is open for 2-hour time blocks throughout each day, and tickets have sold out in the past so you will want to get your tickets ahead of time.

Last year, Sarah von Innerebner won BrickCan’s People’s Choice award with her stunning library from Disney’s Beauty & The Beast that we featured on The Brother Brick. What will win at the show this weekend? Come to BrickCan and vote yourself to help chose the winning creation.
