Our Artists

Real F.R.I.E.N.D.S

Wondering what our artist are up to when they aren't eating ice cream under their art? Then head over to Beacon Gallery at 524B Harrison Ave in Boston to see "Real F.R.I.E.N.D.S.," a show conceived and currated by our current Boylston Street artist Jaamal Eversley. With its unique concept of collaboration and friendship, Real F.R.I.E.N.D.S offers a counterpoint to current events with fun, colorful pieces focused on themes of friendship and love. The intention of this exhibit is twofold: first, to invite the community to experience interdisciplinary collaborations constructed around Eversley’s artistic avatar Spencer Ward, a bold nerd. Second, Real F.R.I.E.N.D.S intends to reinforce the belief that a successful collaborative process strengthens communal bonds and generates dynamic creativity. (Plus, artist Fernando Fula, who showed in our South Boston store is one of the featured artists!) Show runs through November, 2020

LEGO Mural in Assembly Row

Mural artist Megan Amaral and her mural "Hibiscus"

March has brought us another really fun partnership with one of our neighbors. We've partnering with LEGOLAND Discovery Center Boston in Assembly Row to feature "Hibiscus" the mural created entirely of LEGOS by LEGOLAND Discovery Center Boston's Master Model Builder, Megan Amaral.

Megan won the Brick Factor competition to become the Master Model Builderat the Assembly Row LEGOLAND iin 20165. She played with LEGOs as a kid and her love of building structures led her mother to suggest studying architecture in college. Megan designs and build both 3D structures and art pieces like this mural which is 2.5'x2.5'. But if you look around Assembly Row, you'll find a mural over 10 feet long that translates the buildings of the shopping center into a world of LEGOS. Megan also built us a little mini ice cream shop window, complete with baked goods, coffee cups, and ice cream (it just tickles us to no end!). Her mural will stay up for 3 months and we hope to continue featuring her work throughout 2020.

Megan is the only female Master Model Builder in all of North America and one of only four in the world. Read more about her work here. We'd love to see what you create with LEGOS - send us a photo and share your love of LEGOs and ICE CREAM!
