Hidden LEGO Art in Shop Windows Richard Selby from London AFOLs (link) presented fantastic idea his club realized:
" Hey everyone. London AFOLs put on an show with a difference, and I'd love to see other LUGs copy the idea. It was big hit with the public, the local community and our members. And it could work just about anywhere with a busy high (main) street.
Our members made trompe l'oeil models (we use the French term in English) for various shop windows along Wanstead High Street, i.e. a London suburb. There were books in a book shop, glasses in an optician, flowers in a florist... you get the idea. There was even LEGO sushi going round on a conveyor belt in a Japanese restaurant. We then issued a Find The Hidden Lego Art worksheet, and people went in search of the models.
Shops liked it because it increased footfall, mums liked it because they could window-shop, kids liked it because there was Lego, and our members liked it because the models were of a manageable size and were in a safe(ish) environment. I say 'ish' because the sushi on the conveyor was swiped, but that was the only casualty.
Credit for the idea belongs to members Lee and Laura McGinty"
