The San Antonio Botanical Garden welcomes award-winning artist Sean Kenney for a presentation of his fanciful showcase “Nature Connects: Art with LEGO Bricks.” Employing nearly half a million of the iconic building blocks, the touring exhibition features 13 displays — including a “larger-than-life Monarch butterfly and a six-foot hummingbird on a trumpet flower” — that illustrate important topics concerning endangered species, the balance of ecosystems and mankind’s relationship with nature.

So far, the supersize flora and fauna of “Nature Connects” have traveled across the U.S., Asia and Europe, evoking a sense of child-like wonderment while addressing biodiversity and environmental awareness.

$9-$12, grand opening 9am-5pm Sat Sept 1 (activities from 10am-2pm), on view 9am-5pm daily through December 31, San Antonio Botanical Garden, 555 Funston Pl., (210) 536-1400,
