As a kid, you probably had some silly ideas about what you wanted to be when you grew up. Maybe you were planning to be a princess or train dragons for a living.

Or maybe you wanted to be a professional Lego builder.

That dream won’t seem quite as out there after you see “The Art of the Brick” exhibit coming to the Ella Sharp Museum in Jackson tomorrow.

Current State’s April Van Buren speaks with the artist behind the exhibit, Nathan Sawaya.
