  All Day Annie Leibovitz: Pilgrimage   Annie Leibovitz achieved her status as one of America's great photographers with unforgettable images of celebrities from John Lennon to Johnny Depp. But more recently, Leibovitz has trained her camera on famous places and objects, revealing more of herself in the process. "Pilgrimage," an exhibition of more than 70 of these stunning photographs from the Smithsonian American Art Museum's collection, opens at the Abraham Lincoln Presidential Library and Museum on Feb. 8, 2014, and runs through Aug. 31. Visitors will see the landscapes that captured Leibovitz's imagination: Niagara Falls, Yellowstone National Park, a New Mexico mesa. They can scrutinize her close-ups of objects like Emily Dickinson's only surviving dress, Elvis Presley's motorcycle and a bullet hole put in a target by Annie Oakley. Abraham Lincoln plays a major role in "Pilgrimage." Leibovitz photographed the stovepipe hat and the gloves Lincoln had with him on the night of his assassination, as well as a handwritten copy of the Gettysburg Address, photographic negatives of Lincoln and the Lincoln Memorial. Her photos of the bloodstained gloves were taken at the Lincoln Presidential Library and Museum. Access to the exhibition will be free with paid admission to the presidential museum. The Leibovitz photographs will be complemented by elements from the Lincoln Presidential Library's own collections, selected by Mary Michals. The museum will also present a reading of Virginia Woolf's essay "A Room of One's Own" and selections from the play "The Belle of Amherst," both directed by Phil Funkenbusch. Also on the schedule: a screening of the Marilyn Monroe thriller "Niagara."

  9:00AM 5:00PM Boys in Blue IV @ ALPLM   The struggles of Civil War soldiers didn't always end with the war. Many soldiers faced more troubles or risked their lives in new ways when they got home, a reality highlighted in the upcoming exhibit "Boys in Blue IV: In Memory of Heroes" at the Abraham Lincoln Presidential Library and Museum. The free "Boys in Blue IV" exhibit opens at the presidential library on Friday, May 23. Visitors are welcome seven days a week, 9 a.m. - 5 p.m. Through pictures, artifacts and original documents, it explains how Illinois soldiers created the Grand Army of the Republic to speak out on issues affecting veterans nationwide. It includes the assassination of Abraham Lincoln, as well as anti-war riots in Charleston, Ill. It also tells the dramatic stories of two Illinois veterans, one a future governor accused of desertion and the other an activist for newly freed slaves. The future governor was Joseph Fifer, who served in the 33rd Illinois Infantry. He was wounded and went home to recuperate but was listed as a deserter. Despite that, Fifer defeated several former generals in the governor's race of 1888 by campaigning as "Private Joe." Fifer fought for years to have his named cleared, finally succeeding in 1923. Henry H. Pope, a teacher from Taylorville, also served in the 33rd Illinois Infantry. He liked the South so much that he settled in Louisiana after the war and was elected sheriff of St. Mary's Parish, where he worked with Judge Valentine Chase to find employment for recently freed slaves. On October 17, 1868, the Knights of the White Camellia (an "aristocratic" version of the Ku Klux Klan) gunned them both down. Pope was brought back to Illinois by his wife and infant son and buried in Pana The exhibit includes photographs, letters, newspapers and numerous artifacts pertaining to the Grand Army of the Republic. The GAR was founded in Decatur by Springfield physician Benjamin F. Stephenson, who served as surgeon of the 14th Illinois Infantry during the war. He founded it to give former soldiers and sailors a voice in veterans' affairs. The organization flourished for 70 years and wasn't dissolved until 1956, when the last Civil War veteran died. In addition to material owned by the presidential library, the exhibit will showcase Illinois Historic Preservation Agency staff who had ancestors serving in the Civil War. Several of them have provided artifacts, photographs and letters for this exhibit. More than 142,000 people visited the first three "Boys in Blue" exhibits, which explore the experiences of Illinois troops during the Civil War. The exhibits are part of the state's efforts to mark the 150th anniversary of the war.

  8:00PM n/a Theatre in the Park - "Footloose"   Theatre in the Park announces the second show of the outdoor theatre summer season in Lincoln's New Salem State Historic Site, in Kelso Hollow, in Petersburg. Footloose opens June 20, 21, 22, 26, 27, 28, 2014. Karla Wilhelm, director, says, "The music and dance choreography challenges our new young actors and introduces them to the exuberance and energy that can only be found in a show such as Footloose. We may be celebrating the 30th Anniversary of Footloose, but we are also introducing it to a whole new generation of fans." When Ren and his mother move from Chicago to a small farming town, Ren is prepared for the inevitable adjustment period at his new high school. What he isn't prepared for are the rigorous local edicts, including a ban on dancing instituted by the local preacher, determined to exercise the control over the town's youth that he cannot command in his own home. When the reverend's rebellious daughter sets her sights on Ren, her roughneck boyfriend tries to sabotage Ren's reputation, with many of the locals eager to believe the worst about the new kid. The heartfelt story that emerges is of a father longing for the son he lost and of a young man aching for the father who walked out on him. To the rockin' rhythm of its Oscar and Tony-nominated score and augmented with dynamic new songs for the stage musical, Footloose celebrates the wisdom of listening to young people, guiding them with a warm heart and an open mind. In addition to the musical, Theatre in the Park is offering kids, 8 years and up, the opportunity to sing and dance in one song with the cast members at the conclusion of the musical. They can participate in a special two hour workshop/camp the same day that they perform on June 21, 22, 26, 27, or the 28th. Details can be obtained by emailing: TIPFOOTLOOSE@comcast.net or call 217-787-2776. Theatre in the Park has a free pre-show at 7 p.m. in the indoor auditorium before each performance. We have twenty minutes of entertainment and twenty minutes with the directors discussing the production. For more information, please contact TIP's Executive Director, Kari Catton, at 217-241-3241, or www.theatreintheapark.net.
