If you're in Washington already or planning to be in Washington in March, the Kennedy Center for the Performing Arts presents Nordic Cool 2013. Started February 19th, 2013 but going on until March 17th, 2013, this international festival of theater, dance, visual arts, literature, design, cuisine, and film brings together more than 750 artists from Sweden, Norway, Finland, Denmark, Iceland, Greenland, the Faroe Islands, and the Åland Islands.
Being a kid at heart, I gravitated to the LEGO Exhibit and Play Space on the Terrace Level and constructed this step pyramid before they closed for the night (open daily from 10am to 9pm). A shoutout to Denmark for making millions of children happy with these iconic toys! Also surrounding the play station are several iPads featuring some of the most popular games (all made by Nordic-based companies) in mobile gaming today. Finland, thank you for Angry Birds!
