Arthur Gugick, 59, was taken from this Earth on March 30, 2019. Arthur started playing with LEGO at age 7, and attended his first convention in 2005 – BrickFair Virginia. There were about 125 AFOLs in attendance. Arthur has built hundreds of scale miniatures of global landmarks and detailed portraits of pop-culture icons using nothing but LEGO. Arthur was responsible for the Taj Mahal build for the movie Taj (2011) ‘For the Taj Mahal, I actually had to write my own computer software to help me make the dome,” Arthur shared in an interview posted 4 years ago.
Arthur was a beloved high school math teacher at Beachwood City Schools, and a member of NEOLUG. You can view his other works of art on his website.
Bricks at Sea returned to port this past Friday in Miami. A great time was had by all attendees, and NEOLUG was happy to provide support for the event. There were some fun speed build events, give-a-ways, and even BINGO!!
This year Bricks at Sea left Miami Florida, sailed to Nassau Bahamas for 2 days, and took a smooth 7 knot speed back home to Miami. The event was February 17 – February 22. Next year’s tentative plan is to return to the Caribbean around mid-April for closer to 7 days. Anyone wishing to attend next year’s event can find more details on Facebook.
NEOLUG was hosted by Cinemark Theaters in Valley View, Ohio to a preview of the new and exciting sequel: The Lego Movie 2: The Second Part.

This year we were at the Cuyahoga County Fair, in Berea Ohio, from Thursday – Sunday August 8 – 12. NEOLUG had as much fun as the nearly 250,000 fair visitors this year.
We had even more people show up this year to look at the wonders we created such as a mini Cuyahoga County Fair, Egypt, and other creations from the our member artists. The miniaturization of Professor Bubblemaker’s Beautiful Bubble Ballet was a huge hit with both visitors and the professor himself.
