  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.
  5:30PM n/a Veterans Day Program   The U.S. involvement in two famous foreign wars will be discussed at the Sangamon County Historical Society’s program commemorating Veteran’s Day. The program will be held at 5:30 p.m. Tuesday, Nov. 5, at Brookens Auditorium on the University of Illinois Springfield campus. It is free and open to the public. Panelists will include Cecilia Stiles Cornell, Ph.D., an associate professor at UIS, who will address ways in which we remember both wars. She teaches 20th Century American History and U.S. Foreign Relations. Mark DePue, Ph.D., director of oral history at the Abraham Lincoln Presidential Library, will discuss his research with the oral history project and his military background. He is retired from the Illinois Army National Guard and previously taught military science at Western Illinois University and U.S. history at Lincoln Land Community College. He has written two books. They will be joined by World War II veteran, Kenneth “Tuck” Belton and Korean War veteran Bernie Goulet, who have shared their experiences with DePue for the Presidential Library’s Oral History program website. Benton was a B-17 pilot whose plane was shot down over Holland in early 1945. He spent several months with the Dutch underground. Goulet served with the 7th Division during the first, tumultuous year of the Korean War, including the battle around the Chosin Reservoir against the Communist Chinese.
