BOSTON— On Friday, January 19th, 2024, Erin Laundry, known nationally for her appearances on FOX TV’s “LEGO Masters”, unveiled her LEGO® art with an installation on display at Boston Children’s Hospital which runs through late-May 2024. Erin is the owner of Bottomless Bricks in Pittsfield, MA and competed on 6 episodes of Season 3 of LEGO Masters. The exhibit, entitled “Brick by Brick”, is a collaboration of former LEGO Masters contestants including Erin, her “Massachusetts Moms” teammate: Liz Puleo, fellow Season 3 castmate: Christine (Tacos) Blandino, and Season 1 contestant: Corey Samuels.
For this exhibit, Erin drew inspiration from Massachusetts children’s authors for her art pieces. Her mosaics are of “The Cat in the Hat” by Dr Seuss, and “Knuffle Bunny” by Mo Willems. Each mosaic is made up of 4096 individual LEGO tiles. She also contributed an assortment of whimsical sculptures. Erin’s favorite piece in the exhibit, however, is “Pigeon” inspired by the Mo Willems character. Erin and Liz recreated one of their builds from when they were preparing to compete on LEGO Masters: Erin’s “Dunkin’ Coffee Cup” and Liz’s “Donut”. Erin also paid homage to her team’s Episode 2 build “Food Truck Fiasco”, with a micro-build of that model. Other pieces Erin contributed were a Wishing Well, Winter Scenes, Ocean Life, and a Pokeball.
Visitors to Boston Children’s Hospital can experience this whimsical art installation in the 'Mini Museum' on the hospital’s ground level through the end of May 2024. The exhibit is part of the Art Program which currates unique art pieces throughout the hospital. LittleBricks Charity, a 501c3 that brings LEGO® and Build Experiences to children’s hospitals nationwide, also joined the event and donated over 300 LEGO® sets to the hospital. On Friday, the artists participated in building events and answered questions from fans both in-person and virtually through the hospital’s Seacrest Studios. Erin reflected on the day by saying “It was an honor to be part of this event and help spread joy to these incredible kids any their families.”
