In 1999, Lori Kanary became a Guinness record holder when she created Giant Lite-Brite as part of Denver's city wide celebration of the Denver Art Museum's European Impressionism exhibit. As seen from a child's view of the world, Lori's larger than life version of the toy inspired a new Guinness World Record, utilizing 62,856 actual toy Lite-Brite pegs. The image “Impression Sunrise” by Claude Monet, tied into the citywide Impressionism theme.
