  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.

Beginning in the mid-1800s, when the two state geological surveys shared personnel, to the present time, when ISM paleontologists are "virtually" involved in excavations of a mammoth site near Oskaloosa, the direction of paleontological research across the region has been performed in parallel due to a shared geologic and scientific history. This presentation will highlight recent research and discoveries on both sides of the Mississippi, including: giant camels from western Iowa, two new records of large, extinct wolves, and ongoing investigations of a multi-mammoth site in Mahaska County. Free and open to the public. Access to the Research and Collections Center is from 10 1/2 Street between Ash and Laurel Streets.
