LEGO® model commissions for Bowes Museum
Surely one of the UK’s most under-rated museums, the Bowes Museum has a huge and varied collection in its keeping.
Based in County Durham, in the town of Bishop Auckland, the museum worked with Brick This to create a trail of LEGO® recreations of its most famous pieces, from paintings to ships and even a theatre in Paris which belonged to the Bowes family.
As part of a collaboration with Brick This, Bricks McGee created and worked on a number of LEGO® models for the exhibition, including:
- An elaborate writing desk
- A sailed collier ship
- The facade of the Théâtre des Variétés in Paris
- Darly, the Darlington Building Society masoct
Other models within the exhibition include a LEGO® representation of the famous silver swan automata – well worth a look!
Bricks McGee worked on behalf of Brick This to design and build elements of this collection.
