About this creation
This 10-foot wide mural is built with over 55,000 LEGO pieces; raised lettering spells out the full lyrics of "Take me out to the ball game". It's part of my touring exhibit, Big Leagues Little Bricks, celebrating the beauty and lore of baseball as a part of Americana. The show is on display at the Louisville Slugger Museum now through September 2013.


Watch as the lyrics appear before your eyes... (30 seconds)

Hey, Sean, although a lot of people will like the micro scale version of Wrigley Field, I actually prefer this build over that not only because of the awesome mural and almost life-like people that are on there but the raised letters AND having lyrics to THE iconic and quintessential baseball song AND having the same font of letters, the letters being the same size, and being spaced out so perfectly not only between each letter but between each row made this build your masterpieces of your baseball collection. Keep up the good work. (By the way, a friend of mine by the name of Digital Designs made a hotel and I was wondering if you could help him build it in real life and to make some additions that he couldn't do in his virtual building. I think that you would like it, too. Thanks for checking out his work.)

Wicked! Even without the song in it, it would still be one heck of a piece.

Two of my favorite things: baseball and LEGO. Putting them together? Brilliantly awesome! Not to mention this is a stellar mosaic at that!

Brilliant concept. The 'embossing' effect on the letters didn't even over-texture or distort the image, even from fairly close or at side-angles. Nice balance, Cheers!~

Quoting michael k. How long does it usually take you to build a mosaic of this size and detail?
This took about 85 hours to design and build.... that's over half a month. (You should see the ridiculously complicated wood structure we had to build on the back just to keep it rigid and wall-mountable!)
