Through the example of Nehemiah’s rebuilding project this exhibit examine the advantages of play through toy bricks as a language for the story, the accessibility and approachable nature of toys, the practice of imagination to re-creation of the story in reality, and the sharing of the expressions and learnings through the creation.
