Here’s How it Works

  1. To get started, just ask for a Brick Quest and a map at the admissions desk in the Robins Visitors Center.
  2. Follow the directions to all six sculptures and record your answers on the brochure.
  3. If you find all six sculptures, you can get a prize by showing your completed Brick Quest to an Admissions Staff member.
