Generations of children around the world have played with LEGOS.
"By creating large-scale works out of LEGO bricks I think people can connect to the artwork on almost a different level because they can relate to it," Sawaya said. "Because people have LEGO bricks it does create this democratizing of the art world."
Sawaya created 100 works of art made out of LEGO bricks. Some are recreations of famous pieces, such as Michelangelo's "David", Vincent van Gogh's "Starry Night" and Leonardo da Vinci's "Mona Lisa," while others are original pieces.
The exhibit opened on Friday and runs through Jan. 29, 2017.
Sawaya joins Midday Edition Monday to talk about the exhibit and his art.
