Dave Ware, Calgary Lego mosaic artist, and Robin Sather, Canada's only Lego-certified professional, spearheaded the construction of one of Calgary's largest Lego mosaics at TELUS Spark Mar. 23 and 24.

Members of the public were recruited to build more than 1,000 sections — around 48,000 bricks total — of the mosaic, featuring prominent landmarks such as the Calgary Tower, Bow Building, and one of the Centre Street Lions.

The mosaic was made possible by a $1,200 Grassroots Inspired Grant Ware and Sather received from Calgary 2012. It will be on display at TELUS Spark for a few weeks, before it is moved downtown to the Bow Building.
