If you’re into both LEGO art and legalizing it (maaaaan), has Known Gallery got the exhibit for you. Opening May 26, art collective LAGO will be showing off their “Legolize It!” exhibition, which, as you might’ve guessed from the pun and above picture, is a LEGO art show dedicated to marijuana.
The show, at the Known Gallery in Los Angeles, will be opening May 26 and running to June 9. The description for the exhibition is even weirder than the phrase “LEGO marijuana art.” It involves providing a lifelike medical marijuana purchasing experience, complete with synthetic starter-plants and seedlings.
In the wake of increasing raids on Medical Marijuana dispensaries by local, state and federal drug enforcement agencies, the LAgo brand’s brand-new, flagship storefront is set to open on May 26, 2012 at Known Gallery located at 441 North Fairfax Avenue in Los Angeles. The LAgo brand, as a perpetual “harvest” of healing power, has been especially commodified to meet the addictions of anyone who has ever wanted to experience the transaction of purchasing medical marijuana – or fine art – at a legal business organization. Synthetic starter-plants, seedlings, clones and a totally huge selection of intoxicating, fake plastic buds- all built with LEGO bricks to resemble some of the finest strains of medicinal marijuana ever grown- will be on display and available for limited purchase.
I guess this makes sense when you think about some terminology. LEGO pieces are bricks. A lot of pot packaged in such a way is referred to as a brick.
