LEGO Mural

It’s a rare treat to get to combine your extracurricular hobbies with your day job and when I was given the opportunity to not only work with wood and LEGO, AND get paid by my employer to do it, I couldn’t hit the “Heck Yes” button fast enough. We were tasked with creating a mural celebrating the 110th anniversary of Japan’s gift of cherry blossom trees to the United States. What follows is a one-of-a-kind, hand-built mural measuring 4×8 feet in size and containing over 40,000 pieces of LEGO.

Why I included it in my portfolio of work:
Sometimes projects serve dual purposes and this one served many. Not only was it something that remembered the relationships built in the past but one that built new ones 110 years later.
