LEGO challenge at Albany Institute

trinity church albany lego bill leueThis looks fun: the Albany Institute for History and Art is holding an Albany architecture LEGO challenge November 25-27. From the blurbage:

Take part in the LEGO® Building Challenge and create your own take on Albany's Architecture. The challenge is open to individuals, partners, and teams of all ages (up to four people per team). So grab your family, colleagues, and friends and get building! Basic LEGO®s will be provided, or you can bring your own. Challenge participation is free, but spaces are limited so reservations are recommended. Contact Barbara Collins, Education Coordinator, at collinsb@albanyinstitute.org.

The challenge is limited to 15 teams, and registration is still open. Bonus: AOA Mary will be one of the judges.

The LEGO challenge is part of the museum's annual free gift fair and family festival. Also on the slate: ace local LEGO builder Bill Leue will be working on his re-creation of the historic -- and now demolished -- Trinity Church.

The US Committee for Refugees and Immigrants (USCRI) in Albany takes that type of thing. I did an internship there and it's a really great organization and the refugees who receive the items are super grateful.
