By Official Press Release Friday, March 11th, 2016

Today in Times Square, on ABC's Good Morning America, contemporary artist Nathan Sawaya unveiled his newest art installation by signaling for Batman. The life-size, fully functional Bat-Signal is built from thousands of tiny LEGO bricks and is a replica of the one seen in the upcoming film Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice. Towering over 7-feet-high, the iconic floodlight that Commissioner Gordon uses in times of trouble, this brick Bat-Signal is built out of more than 75,000 LEGO bricks. It took the artist and his team more than five weeks to create and will be making a few stops across the country, including at WonderCon in the DC Comics booth, before joining his wildly popular touring exhibition, THE ART OF THE BRICK: DC COMICS.
