It’s LEGO time!


12:00 - 4:00 pm

Art Exchange

admission free

At Art Exchange we’re getting out the LEGO!

Come and relax with our buckets of LEGO bricks. Let your imagination take you away from it all, as new worlds open up made of the ultimate building block.

We take our inspiration from the 1962 model for the University of Essex made by architect Kenneth Capon in LEGO as a Christmas present for founding Vice-Chancellor Albert Sloman. In our current show ‘Brutal But Beautiful’, this sits alongside the Masterplan model of campus made a year later – and its fascinating to see how ideas for a new university evolved.

It all began with a few LEGO bricks – and the rest is history.

Admission free – all welcome. There’s no need to book – just drop by Art Exchange.
