  8:30AM 5:00PM Figurism: Narrative and Fantastic Figurative Art   Figurism: Narrative and Fantastic Figurative Art brings together historical and contemporary body-based art by over fifty artists from the Illinois State Museum collection. The exhibition emphasizes the power and the range of the narrative and expressive uses of the figure in Midwest art. The artworks were selected to create a better understanding and consideration of different representational styles and the ability of the figure to carry feeling, memory, and experience. They were also selected with an eye toward something fantastic—a heightened sense of the super-real or super-natural—whether through aggressive, expressive form, high-keyed color, inventive graphics, or ambiguous situations. The Museum is open from 8:30-5:00 Monday through Saturday and from 12:00-5:00 on Sunday. Admission is free. Parking is available nearby and the building is ADA accessible. For more information contact Jim Zimmer at 217-782-7440.
 
  9:00AM 5:00PM Gettysburg Address 150   Special displays, videos, films and events to commemorate the 150th anniversary of Lincoln's Gettysburg Address. On Wednesday, Nov. 20, Union Theater hosts a special roundtable of historians discussing the address and its legacy, followed by a dramatic presentation based on speeches inspired by the Gettysburg Address. The roundtable includes James Cornelius, curator of the presidential library’s Lincoln Collection; Martin Johnson, author of “Writing the Gettysburg Address”; Holly Kent, a history professor at the University of Illinois at Springfield; and Daniel Stowell, director of the Papers of Abraham Lincoln. They’ll explore the meaning and legacy of the address. Part of that legacy is the way Lincoln’s speech inspired others. After the roundtable, a special presentation will dramatize that inspiration as actors read portions of other speeches delivered at Gettysburg. They’ll present the words of Woodrow Wilson, Lyndon Johnson, Dwight Eisenhower, Tom Brokaw and more. Finally, on Sunday, Nov. 24, Union Theater will screen the documentary “The Gettysburg Story,” a gorgeous look at the battlefield, the address and their place in history. Filmmaker Jake Boritt will be on hand to answer questions from the audience. The movie runs at 3 p.m. Reservations for the free event can be made at http://tinyurl.com/BorittMovie. http://www.illinois.gov/alplm/GettysburgAddress150/Pages/default.aspx
