HILUG at Bishop Museum’s Travelling Bricks

May 25 – Oct. 27, 2019

HILUG is proud to partner with Bishop Museum on the new Travelling Bricks Exhibit! This show include 120 LEGO® models in 60 scenes, created by LEGO® Professional Artists, including a 22-foot-long Titanic, 10-foot-long Zeppelin, a Saturn V rocket, and a 10-foot-long Carl Sagan spaceship!

HILUG brings a unique sense of aloha to Bishop Museum’s presentation of this exhibit, with models of familiar and iconic Hawaiian images like Aloha Tower and the voyaging canoe, Hōkūleʻa.

LEGO® Lemur Mosaic

For the Honolulu Zoo’s Wildest Show in Town events this summer, Christine created a large lemur MOC mosaic to highlight the Zoo’s current fundraiser aimed at helping their ring-tailed lemurs. The mosaic was created out of over 10,000 LEGO® bricks. Detail of the tail shows use of old white bricks to create a more natural fade in parts of the fur. Pending the scheduling of the Zoo’s annual Gala event, we hope to have it auctioned off and have the profits donated to the Zoo to help benefit the Society. Special thanks to Lennette Newell for permission to use her photographic image as inspiration for this mosaic.
