Holy Legos, Batman!
July 13th, 2012 2:47PM

Today, Batman is being immortalized in Legos. As I write, Nathan Sawaya is adapting a Jim Lee painting of Batman to Lego sculpture at the DC Comics Darkness and Light exhibition on 5th Avenue, the main street of San Diego's Gaslamp District. It's part of San Diego Comic-Con festivities, and he's expected to wrap up around 4 p.m.

Sawaya has been a full-time Lego sculpture artist for around eight years. Before he investigated what he could do with a childhood toy, Sawaya "sculpted art out of more traditional media." The folks at DC looked him up for their exhibit, part of the We Can Be Heroes campaign. Catwoman was his first DC Lego work.

Darkness and Light: Art Inspired by Heroes & Villains, Hope & Heroism includes art with a DC theme and photos documenting the effects of hunger in the Horn of Africa, according to a DC press release. It's on display until July 15 at Michael J. Wolf Fine Arts Gallery, there's no charge and you don't need to be a Comic-Con attendee. It's part of DC's We Can Be Heroes campaign to raise money to combat hunger.
