Explore Artwork Created by Local Students

Displays of children’s artistic expression are often limited to the family refrigerator. Any child, upon seeing his or her creative endeavors hanging in a real art gallery gets a memorable and validating experience. It doesn’t happen every day, except for the artists whose work appears in the Museum’s Good Show! Gallery.

Filling the Good Show! Gallery with children’s thoughtful work offers many unique opportunities for local students, their families, and for Museum staff in investigating the impact of creating art on critical thinking and creative development. Targeting title one schools, the Museum’s Arts Specialist, works closely with school administrators and teachers to develop art projects that support art, math, science, and literacy curriculum.

Current Exhibition

Awesome Black Creativity

Awesome Black Creativity, a celebration of Black figures in LEGO® Bricks, is on display in the Good Show! Gallery at DuPage Children’s Museum through March 2024.


This interactive exhibition of 26 LEGO brick-built figures, an A–Z series, will inspire Museum guests to think about building in new, innovative ways while providing the opportunity to make and display their own creations alongside LEGO Masters.

Dave Kaleta and Richard Dryden represented themselves on LEGO Masters FOX in 2021 as a team of dads who are passionate about environmentalism, social justice, and civic and cultural pride. To continue the work they began on the show, they embarked on a 26-week project. Awesome Black Creativity celebrates contemporary and historical Black creatives across disciplines such as contemporary dance, photography, music, film, culinary arts, activism, and more.

The Awesome Black Creativity exhibition is innovative and informative. Guests will find themselves using LEGOs to express their own creativity in clever styles. The Good Show! Gallery will be set up with “LEGO galore” for guests to view, explore, wonder, learn, and build.
