TABLE FOR TEN - OMSI
31 MAY 2017
Sometimes the best stories come in the most unusual forms. And sometimes they come in 100 different pieces.
A week before our last event, we sent each of our guests a box of 100 unmarked LEGO pieces. The singular objective - build a 3D creation that tells your story to 10 of your peers.
Descending on OMSI for Table for Ten, our guests sipped hand-crafted cocktails during a private tour of OMSI's The Art of The Brick Exhibit on May 16th. From life-size statues to Lego replica's of famous paintings, the intricacy of the designs inspired conversation.
OMSI's Theory created a deconstructed 4-course tableside dinner while our guests dined amidst some of the most iconic LEGO art ever created. An Oregon native, Nathan Sawaya has created a wonderland of sculptures ranging from a T-Rex skeleton to a foreboding Easter Island statue, his work exudes creativity.
In our case, the best stories of the night emerged from taking these 100 disparate LEGO pieces and turning them into a powerful storytelling vehicle anchored in connecting Portland's creative community.
