TORONTO, July 11, 2013 /CNW/ - LEGOLAND® Discovery Centre Toronto
officially kicks off the attraction's new 4D movie Legends of CHIMA today by getting members of the public to help create four large LEGO
brick mosaics on the transit shelter on the south/west corner of Yonge
Armed with over 110,000 LEGO bricks, LEGOLAND Discovery Centre's team
will enlist the help of anyone willing to be part of this creation and
explore their artistic side. Following a similar method to
paint-by-numbers, the public will use the bricks to build small LEGO
tiles that will combine on a "canvas" to create an entire picture. Once
assembled, the mosaics will feature posters for LEGOLAND Discovery
Centre's new 4D movie Legends of CHIMA.
Bertie, the LEGOLAND Discovery Centre mascot, will be joined by Master
Model Builder Graeme Dymond and the Junior Construction Panel to
recruit the public to help assemble the mosaics.
"Building these mosaics is a great way to bring elements of the
attraction — interaction, education, teamwork and art — to the streets
and encourage people to be a part of a piece of artwork that will
remain at Yonge and Dundas for the summer," said Marketing Manager Lara
Hannaford. We encourage hands on interaction with families at the
LEGOLAND Discovery Centre and this one day promotional event will
showcase just that.
Once the campaign is over the mosaics will be on display at the LEGOLAND
