To attract visitors to the museum's exhibit, Dolensek turned to Joseph Burck Jr. a local artist adept in a variety of mediums, including acrylic and clay.  He builds large displays from Legos.

Burck was asked to create something for a vacant store front's window on City Island Ave near Hawkins Street used to advertise the museum to visitors, and he created a Lego sculpture for the museum's promotion.

The black replica of the 1901-era bridge includes both the footings of the old bridge, the superstructure and roadway.  It is black to symbolize mourning.

"I was sitting in my Lego room, playing with the pieces and thinking about the scaffolding on the bridge; I realized that I can make this out of Legos," said Burck, has a holiday display in the same vacant storefront.
