Soon Kitty in Museum LEGO Exhibit

The day after Thanksgiving here in America, a LEGO Exhibit by the Connecticut Registered LEGO User Group, ConnLUG, featured Soon Kitty in holiday garb built entirely of LEGO in the Wadsworth Atheneum Museum of Art’s Festival of Trees and Traditions.

The festival runs from Friday, November 29th through Sunday, December 8th, 2019 from 10 am until 5 pm during which patrons can visit the museum and witness wreaths and trees celebrating Christmas traditions from all over the globe including–LEGO.

Ten years ago, LEGO donated an eight foot tall Duplo tree to the Wadsworth Atheneum Museum of Art which went largely unused due to the complexity of assembly until the Connecticut RLUG came in to help with it’s display three years ago.

New ornaments and lighting continue to evolve decorating the tree every year in the two week long LEGO Exhibit along with an ever growing collection of Christmas village, city pieces, and a lot of MOCs (my own creations).

More MOCs include the Best Lighted winner from 2019’s Brick Fair New Jersey, the MOC is a large library featuring a spiral staircase leading up to a cafe in an all windows cylindrical building.

Architectural buildings with real life themes as well as organic modified builds can be found at the exhibit.

While Soon Kitty enjoys his stay at the museum of art, plans are underway to build more Awkward Paws Publishing characters and expand on Soon Kitty’s design. If you’re in the area, you can visit Soon Kitty in person at the Wadsworth Atheneum Museum of Art from now until Dec. 8th, 2019 for a dazzling display of lights and holiday cheer… and of course, LEGO.

The tale of Soon Kitty is told by Grant Uchida and illustrated beautifully by James Ishizaki. If you’d like to enjoy Soon Kitty at home for the holidays with friends and family, you can get a paperback of his book on Amazon now!

Happy Holidays from all of us here at Awkward Paws Publishing!
