Thanks all who came out to the Vancouver Lego Store Grand Opening where a number of our members were volunteering their time over the past weekend to help make the Lego event Grand Opening weekend and the 8 foot R2-D2 build go smoothly.
Many of you were curious to find out where to find our next public display of Lego creations. I’m pleased to announce that up next will be the Surrey Museum located in Cloverdale.
The title of the show is Lego: Myths and Muses and we have chosen to depict the stories and mythologies of Greece, Rome, Persia (Troy), Egypt, Hades (the Underworld) and of course, it would not be complete without the lost city of Atlantis.
It’s been an ambitious project as there hasn’t really been an official Lego Ancient World’s theme to draw upon. Like many of the mythologies of long ago that were left up to interpretation and imagination, so to are our depictions of certain mythologies. Artistic license is being used and we certainly hope that you enjoy.
Watch out in the coming weeks for teaser photos of the layout, here and on our Twitter feed. https://twitter.com/#!/vanlegoclub
