Calling all LEGO® building extraordinaires! We’re so excited to partner with Denver Museum of Nature and Science’s newest exhibition, “Art of the Brick,” for a building contest featuring our historic station.
Through Thursday, November 5th, we’re challenging YOU to create your best replica of the iconic Denver Union Station building using exclusively LEGO® elements. To enter, post your Union Station creation to Instagram using the hashtag #BuildTheStation and tag our Instagram account @DenverUnionStation. All ages are welcome to participate.
The Denver Union Station marketing team will select the top five submissions on Friday, November 6th – based on creativity, construction technique & overall aesthetic. Denver Union Station will then invite our Instagram followers to help name the “People’s Choice” winner by featuring the top five selections on our Instagram account the following week.
Additionally, the top five nominees will be shared with Nathan Sawaya (artist mastermind behind “Art of the Brick”), who will select the Build the Station Grand Prize winner. Both winners will be announced on Monday, Nov. 16th.
The Grand Prize winning creation will be displayed in Denver Union Station’s Great Hall through January 31, 2021. The winner will also receive a two-night stay at The Crawford Hotel, with valet parking, dinner for two and breakfast for two included, along with two tickets to “The Art of the Brick” at the DMNS.
The People’s Choice Prize winner will receive two complimentary tickets to “The Art of the Brick.”

“The Art of the Brick” features works by renowned contemporary artist Nathan Sawaya, who has taken LEGO® bricks from beloved toys to artistic marvels. The exhibit showcases Sawaya’s original artworks – including fan favorite Yellow, a life-size sculpture of a man with thousands of yellow LEGO® bricks cascading from his chest, and a T. rex skeleton made out of 80,000 LEGO® bricks – along with reimagined versions of famous art masterpieces such as Van Gogh’s Starry Night.
