LEGO Mosaic: "The Collegiate School"
Click for larger version.
I was contacted by the alumni office at Collegiate School to collaborate on a LEGO-themed party. This was the school's annual fundraiser, and because of their new construction, they aptly chose LEGO to be the year's theme.
We pre-built a significant portion of the lettering for the school's logo and spent a full day at the school, working on the Lego mosaic with the kids from the lower school.
In 20 minute waves, I would introduce myself, tell the kids a bit about the work that I've done building mosaic portraits, and then point them to the project. It takes very little direction to get a large portrait completed when you're working with great imaginations!
By the end of the day, more than 400 kids came through, and we had a completed mosaic. This Lego mosaic was auctioned at the Collegiate School fundraiser, and raised $22,100. For an idea of scale, here is a video of me removing it from one location and re-hanging it in the school's library:
