Lego my Dallas

Tour city landmarks & support East Dallas Community Schools … all from one room!

Walk into Dallas Cityscape and walk into a crisp, primary-colored toy metropolis in the heart of Northpark Center. The exhibit shows off what you wish you could create when you were a three-year-old — sizable works of Lego-art, all to benefit East Dallas Community Schools. The tiny blocks of color link together to create a pixelated view of some of Dallas’ finest parks and buildings…

…Including the Nasher Sculpture Center and Jonathan Borofsky’s ‘Walking to  the Sky’:

…The Hyatt Regency and Reunion Tower:

…Even Victory Park, with giant flat screen and all. This construction weighs over 400 lbs!

Sponsored by the Matthews and Kleinert families, as well as by Woodbine Development Corp, Hunt Realty Investments and Northpark, Dallas Cityscape has attracted over 2,000 visitors, raising thousands of dollars in support of education.

The East Dallas Community School (EDCS) began in 1978 when a group of parents and teachers began meeting to improve the education of their children, and eventually grew to become the EDCS with a mission of providing outstanding education to culturally and economically diverse groups of children from primarily low income families during their first nine years of life.

Don’t miss this fun and meaningful exhibition that runs through August 1. Be sure to bring your kiddos – they can channel their inner architect at the Kids Construction Zone… be warned – they’ll likely to convince you to stop at the Lego store on your way out.
