Artist Ed Diment will assemble a 22-foot-long, 550 pound model USS Intrepid out of LEGO® bricks from Friday, April 15 through Saturday, April 16 from 10:00 AM – 5:00 PM, daily, at the Intrepid Sea, Air & Space Museum.
Diment, 39, will be flown to New York City by British Airways, and will assemble the structure over two days, while also teaching children at the Museum how to build smaller ships, planes and structures out of LEGO®.
The final model USS Intrepid will be 22 feet long, nearly 4.5 feet high, 4.5 feet wide and weigh 550 pounds. Diment resides in Portsmouth, England, where he originally built the model after visiting the Intrepid Sea, Air & Space Museum while vacationing in New York. The model will be on display at the Museum through September 2011.
