Title: LEGO Portraits
Brickworkz LLC, in collaboration with Project: Just Like You created LEGO mosaic portraits designed to promote social inclusion. The colorful portraits first launched at the 2nd annual RVA Different Abilities Day on Monday, December 3. These eye-catching mosaic portraits made entirely of LEGO bricks will tour Richmond-area galleries in 2019.
Each of the four LEGO mosaic portraits portrays a child with special needs in the greater Richmond, Virginia area. During the assembly of these mosaic portraits, Brickworkz filmed time-lapse footage and overlaid voiceovers from the child’s parent, describing their child’s life and the importance of inclusion in their families. “We want each portrait to capture the essence of the child so their story comes together as the portrait does,” said Brian Korte, founder of Brickworkz LLC.
